"Participating in the CENE-BDC partnership led to a game-changing strategic opportunity."

- David Ciccarelli, CEO,

"Takeaways from the mentoring session were incredibly helpful and we’ve benefitted immensely from the new connections. CENE mentors encouraged me to focus on an untapped opportunity and, ultimately, we were accepted to the prestigious and highly selective Analytics Lab (A-Lab) at MIT. We’re now learning from the world’s best and brightest."

"CENE Mentors gave me advice and perspectives I couldn't have arrived at on my own."

- Chris Mihalicz, CEO, Three Point Turn

"If you’re concerned that taking the time for this trip to Boston will take your eye off the ball, don’t be. The ROI from the opportunity far outweighs another day or two spent in operations. I was able to talk to leaders in the industry, one on one, and have them listen and evaluate my particular pain points. It was inspiring, innovating and I would do it again."
