ThinkCERCA Founder and CEO Eileen Murphy Buckley shared her insights on the benefits of participating in startup accelerators on a panel at the Chicago Innovation Exchange. In 2012, Eileen joined accelerator Impact Engine, which helps for-profit companies tackling social or environmental issues.
“It’s like being in school, you have classmates, you have teachers, it’s wonderful,” she said. “Despite all of that help and that comfort, at the end of the day it’s your business.”
