Testimonials

“Elaine has been a tremendous contributor to the success of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship. She has been able to combine her extremely strong technical capability (which gives her instant credibility) with a mind set and ability to get things done that will create a great product and ultimately business.”

Bill Aulet, Author, Senior Lecturer and Managing Director, Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship

“I worked closely with Elaine in creating the first MITx Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp. Elaine took the many valuable, yet often disparate, parts of the MIT entrepreneurship experience – people, content, culture, mentoring, action learning, rigor, expectations – and fused them into a stimulating, coherent, intense one-week curriculum that just worked.”

Erdin Beshimov, Lecturer, Office of Digital Learning, MIT

“Elaine worked with my product team intensively over a three month period, during which she helped take an idea from concept to a defined MVP with a clear execution plan. Elaine is a creative, focussed and high-energy consultant who brings a wealth of start-up expertise to the table. She understands what is needed to get the job done within tight financial and time constraints.”

Jonathan Hakim, Founder and CEO, Cignifi

“Elaine helped us define the product, design the system architecture, and identify a product design partner to bring our vision to life. Elaine’s deep experience in product development with integrated hardware and software was invaluable in helping us get the job done on an aggressive schedule. She acts with high integrity and is a trusted advisor to the whole team.”
