One Week Until BUILDFest 2014!

BUILDFest2014

What’s the most exciting and rewarding way to meet Tim Ferriss, New York Times best-selling author, entrepreneur, angel investor, and “this generation’s self help guru”?

At BUILDFest, of course!

Come celebrate youth entrepreneurship with BUILD students at our annual gala and student business expo! BUILDFest will feature our students selling their unique and original products. You also will hear directly from our students on BUILD’s impact in their lives, and from our three honorees.

This year, we are thrilled to have three wonderful honorees including Tim Ferris, John Barros, the Chief of Economic Development of Boston, and Steve DiFillippo, the Chief Executive Officer of Davio’s Restaurant Group.

There is also a limited opportunity to buy premium tickets, which include an intimate cocktail reception with Tim Ferriss. Ferriss has been praised as “The Superman of Silicon Valley,” and who wouldn’t want to have cocktails with Superman?

By purchasing a seat for yourself, or a table for your company, you will help propel our students on to college and career success. BUILDFest offers numerous opportunities to connect with like-minded professionals from the Boston area over food, drinking, dancing and fun!

Most importantly, you will have a direct and lasting impact on a student’s future when you purchase your ticket to BUILDFest. Don’t hesitate to secure your seat—we expect 2014 to be our best gala yet!

BUILDFest will be held:

October 30, 2014
6p.m to 10p.m.
Westin Copley
10 Huntington Ave
Boston, MA 02116
