Fourth-year Northeastern student Meghan D'Arcy was a freshman when she won a ticket to the WISE Summit and discovered the entrepreneurial spirit.
D'Arcy was so moved and “really inspired” by the serendipitous event she joined the Women's Interdisciplinary Society of Entrepreneurship.
“I took a chance on going and met a lot of great people, and I realized that WISE would be a good spot for me on campus,” D'Arcy says.
As the head of Summit 2023, D'Arcy wants to bring the same entrepreneurial inspiration to others at this year's event on Saturday, March 18, at the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex building on the Boston campus. Registration is $20 through Friday, March 17.
“I hope that no matter where attendees are in their entrepreneurship journey, whether they have an idea in their head or they have no idea what entrepreneurship means, that they get one step closer to seeing how it can impact their lives,” D'Arcy says. “Whether that's meeting a co-founder or even signing up to take an entrepreneurship class.”
The Summit—the biggest event of the year for WISE—aims to provide students at Northeastern and in the Greater Boston area an opportunity to connect with a diverse group of female and non-binary business founders and entrepreneurs. The theme this year is “Created by Courage.”
