Scott Kirsner looked at how trade associations in the Boston deal with student membership/participation in a recent post. I’m on the board of The Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange (MITX), which he gives a B-. While I’m sure I agree with Scott’s rating system which compares apples to oranges, I am in total agreement with him that we need more focus on engaging students in and around entrepreneurial activities. In fact, this was a topic that led to a good discussion at the last MITX board meeting and we have some good ideas on how to make things better both through the work we do and through partnering with other organizations.
