Beth Kahn Appointed to the Executive Committee of MIT Enterprise Forum San Diego

(La Jolla, CA) Beth Kahn, Vice President of Operations and Quality for E-Band Communications, has been appointed to a two- year term on the Chapter Executive Committee of the MIT Enterprise Forum San Diego.

Beth is a seasoned technology executive with a successful record of building and transforming businesses. She joined E-Band in the fall of 2007 as part of the start-up team.   Prior to E-Band Beth has held key executive positions in operations, sales, marketing and engineering with Stratex Networks (now Aviat Networks), P-Com and Lucent Technologies.  Beth began her career at Bell Laboratories and holds a Masters' degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT.

Beth is a long time participant in the MIT Enterprise Forum in Cambridge, New York City, and Silicon Valley (VLAB).  She is looking forward to working with the San Diego forum and will be focusing in particular on expanding the participation and engagement of students.

The role of Chapter Executive Committee (CEC) on the MIT Enterprise Forum San Diego is to provide leadership and oversight to the local chapter on local activities and operations.  The CEC is composed of Chapter Officers and "at large" representatives of the technology and life science industries, educators, professional service providers and regional business leaders, with proportional representation by MIT alumni and representative(s) of the MIT Club of San Diego.

The mission of the MIT Enterprise Forum San Diego, which was a founding chapter of the Global MIT Enterprise Forum, Inc., is to educate entrepreneurs in an informative and entertaining environment in front of a diverse audience of San Diego business leaders and technologists, as well as capital and service providers. The San Diego chapter is locally managed by CONNECT, which serves the regional innovation economy as a collaborative resource. Visit www.sdmitforum.org or www.connect.org for more information.

Founded in 1978 as part of the MIT Alumni Association, the Enterprise Forum offers over 300 educational and networking events through its current 27 chapters globally. Enterprise Forum participation and involvement is open to anyone interested in entrepreneurship - MIT graduates and non-graduates - and attracts executives, business leaders, venture capitalists, industry experts, and service organizations, in addition to our core of emerging entrepreneurs with technology business expectations. The most valuable component of the Enterprise Forum is the networking connections that are developed amongst technology entrepreneurs and the communities in which they reside. #  #  #
