The Harvard Club of Northeast Ohio invites our fellow Ivy League and Seven Sisters alumni to join the Harvard Alumni Association’s Global Networking Night on Monday, June 23, 2014 for a local event at Playhouse Square. With events in 71 cities and over 5,000 participants at the last Global Networking Night, local alumni are encouraged to take this opportunity to explore and expand their professional networks.


We will begin the evening at Flashstarts, Inc. at 6:00 where Jennifer Neundorfer, Harvard Alumn and Co-Founder, CFO/COO of Flashstarts, and Anthony Hughes, a University of Edinburgh Alum and founding director of the Burton D. Morgan Mentoring Program at JumpStart, Inc., will discuss how technology accelerators function to give rise to regional economic development, and specifically what Flashstarts and JumpStart have been up to in Cleveland. 


Flashstarts is an agile startup accelerator that focuses on unique and innovative uses of software and technology.  FlashStarts is committed to helping accelerate the growth of IT entrepreneurship in Northeast Ohio through the launch of the Flashstarts Accelerator Fund.


JumpStart is one of the nation's most respected start-up focused economic development organizations.  A unique partnership between public and private entities, JumpStart is focused on driving economic transformation in Northeast Ohio through the growth of an entrepreneurial ecosystem.
