More than 33,000 companies have been founded by the MIT community—is yours among them? In today’s 3 p.m. EDT Twitter Chat, Alumni Association President John Chisholm ’75, SM ’76 will share lessons from Unleash Your Inner Company, his new play book for aspiring entrepreneurs.

He’ll share what resources helped him launch three successful companies and survive the dot com crash. He’ll also tweet about why he believes frugality is key to any startup’s livelihood.

“Before now, startups always seemed so distant, and I didn’t know where to start. Now I realize that I have all the resources I need,” said Ben Potash ’14 of Chisholm’s book.

The discussion will conclude with Chisholm’s preview of this weekend’s Alumni Leadership Conference, open to all alumni interested in getting more involved with MIT.

The chat will be co-sponsored by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship. Join us by tweeting your questions with the hashtag #MITAlum.
