Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs
HAE is dedicated to the advancement of entrepreneurship and the ideals of leadership and learning. For 10 years, the group has been a meeting point for founders and innovators worldwide, serving alumni from all of Harvard’s schools and at all phases across the arc of a self-authored career. This spring HAE invites alumni to participate in two activities: regional book clubs and an online anthology. Beginning in March, alumni will gather around the world to discuss the leadership lessons found in literature. Hosts and participants are needed; to get involved, visit www.harvardalumnientrepreneurs.com/events/ucevents.php.
