VMS thanks Kathleen for her leadership, generosity and service to MIT and the entrepreneurial community.

I’ve been a VMS mentor for over 13 years. When I first joined VMS, my motivation was to give back to MIT with more than just dollars. I wanted to give of myself; I wanted to give today’s entrepreneurs the support that did not exist for me with my companies. It took a number of years for me to fully realize just what a priceless commodity MIT VMS mentoring is to our entrepreneurs — one that is not easily replicated, even though there are now quite a few entrepreneurial support programs at MIT. We all have heard the latest VMS stats. VMS has certainly grown and continues to grow. But it remains a lean mean little machine – a machine that requires dollars as well as volunteers. What a travesty it would be not to have VMS, what a loss for our community. So I give dollars and I give my time. I ask that you also give, monetarily – all dollars count, no matter how few or many.
