NECINA Youth Entreprenurship Service（YES）8.0
NECINA Youth Entrepreneurship Service（YES）8.0 has attracted 50 students to sign up this year, out of which 32 students have formed 8 teams and are working on their business projects. YES 8.0 is sponsored by both Cambridge Innovation Center（CIC）and IBM. Thanks for CIC, students are able to sit in a cozy yet vibrant startup environment to learn about starting a business and creating business plans（an image of Venture Cafe）. This year, we have invited three key organizers from Startup Weekend Boston
, who helped us create an interactive learning environment where students could not only learn but also have fun at the same time. The concepts ofLean Startup
and Business Model Generation Canvas
were introduced, so that students are able to stay up to date with what is happening in the current startup movements nationwide. Among the eight teams, Zap Watch is eager to take the business idea to another level and has even joined NECINA NEW program to compete with adult part-time entrepreneurs.
Both Semi-final（which takes place on February 1st, 2014）and final competitions（which takes place on February 15th, 2014）will be held at Havana Room, Cambridge Innovation Center. If you are interested in joining us in the semi-final or in the final competition, please feel free to let us know by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

NECINA Marketing Workshop（NMW）
We had our kickoff session on Oct 29th in which we invited Prof. Jennifer Lawrence. who was the managing director of Executive Education at HBS, to teach some basic concepts of Marketing. It was an interesting session where she applied the very basic 4P and 3C concepts into an HBS case study of "Habitats of Humanity" and had some in-depth discussion with the class.
Our first meetup session was about Strategic Planning. The guest speaker was Robert Yung, Chief Strategic Officer of Analogue Devices（ADI）. He shared with the class some frameworks as how strategic planning should flow as well as some innovative trends in the next 5-10 years.
Our second meetup session was about marketing analytics. Guest speaker Su Shen, director of advanced research at Liberty Mutual shared with the class the basic concept, application, process, and tools of analysis.
Besides the meetup sessions, attendees were divided into groups to work on NECINA programs and projects to learn about hands on marketing skills such as email marketing, event marketing, data analysis and more.
