Also featuring “Never Too Late to Startup” book release!!

Have you thought about starting a company, but you believe it’s too risky? Do you think startups are better suited for young founders? The media and venture capitalists would have you believe that is true.

Entrepreneur and former VC Rob Kornblum shows us otherwise in his new book “Never Too Late to Startup.” Kornblum interviews dozens of mid-life founders who used their market insight, team-building skills, business acumen and network to get out of the corporate world and start successful new businesses.

This book was first conceived when the author was leading a startup, as well as mentoring others, inside PayPal’s Start Tank accelerator. Come hear the story!

   

About PayPal:

It’s not just the treadmill desks and bagel Wednesdays that employees rave about. It’s being on the cutting edge of mobile commerce, from Venmo and Paydient, to PayPal Here and other yet to be launched mobile applications. The employees at PayPal’s Boston office in the heart of Boston’s financial district work every day to create a seamless, engaging, and integrated user experience, so its customers can securely shop and pay online at the speed of want. There’s a New Money in Town – come see what all the fuss is about. Join us at MITX After Dark to mix and mingle with the brains behind these game changing technologies.

Don't miss out on this great event! There is no cost to attend, so register now! Please note that alcohol will be served, so you must be 21+ to attend. See you there!
