Thank you for your interest in joining OPEN New England.

OPEN-NE membership is open to anyone, irrespective of ethnic or regional affiliations, who is interested in promoting the goals of the organization.

.

Membership benefits include:

1) Networking Opportunities

Connect with engaged and passionate professionals, entrepreneurs, and students with a global perspective and expertise across many fields. We have local, national and international events through our sister chapters, and an exclusive OPEN mobile app.

2) Discounted Admission to OPEN and partner organizations’ Events

Attend our events, as well as those of the other chapters, at members’ rates. Many events are free and most include Pakistani food.  You can get access and discounted admission to events of organizations in the region such as the Harvard Business School Association of Boston, TIE, Cambridge Business Development Center, MIT Enterprise Forum, Mass Biotech Council, and others (list subject to change).

3) Roundtables and Dinners

OPEN-NE often has events where members get to interact with Charter and board members in an informal setting, including guest speakers.  Recently we met with the head of the Karachi Stock Exchange and Chairman of the National Bank of Pakistan, as well as a senior advisor to the Government of Pakistan.

4) Business Plans

Members can present their business plans at quarterly OPEN Board meetings. Previous presenters have found this forum invaluable for critiquing their ideas, introducing them to sources of funding, and recruiting advisors, board and employees for their companies.

5) Mentorship

All members can apply for our mentorship program.  In addition, Board and Charter members are available to provide informal guidance to members.
