Boston Area Entrepreneurs: Have Lunch with Your Favorite CEO

My friend and entrepreneurial mentor Joe Caruso founded BREW (Boston Region Entrepreneurship Week) a few years ago and this year looks to be the biggest and best yet. As a quick aside, if you’re an entrepreneur in the greater Boston area you surely know (or at least know of) Joe. He’s reputation precedes him and it’s no surprise that entrepreneurs literally line up at his door to meet with him. While Joe is an active angel investor (with investments in HubSpot, Carbonite, Kinvey, SCVNGR & LevelUp, Skyhook Wireless, among many others) it’s through his intellectual capital that people find the most value.

Like previous BREW events, entrepreneurs have a chance to lunch with a selection of some of Boston’s hottest and most successful company CEOs and founders, including Jeremy Allaire, Desh Deshpande, Paul English, David Friend, Scott Griffith, Diane Hessan, Dharmesh Shah, among many others. But time is running out – so if you want to get involved with BREW, but especially have a chance to spend some quality time with a CEO who could share some very valuable wisdom and guidance (and potentially more), now is the time to make your request.

To request a lunch with a CEO, first check out the list here on the BREW CEO page, select your top 3 CEOs, and submit your request. The deadline is October 31st, after which time the CEOs will make their selections and schedule lunch with you. And your lunch will be just you and him/her – no interruptions.

Check out the list here, and read more about the CEO Lunch program here.
