Melissa Ablett nieuw RCD bestuurslid

Tijdens de Algemene Ledenvergadering van de vereniging RCD zijn Fleur van Bruggen (Unilever) en Melissa Ablett (CIC Rotterdam) toegetreden tot het bestuur. Het zittende bestuur is erg blij dat deze twee powerladies het team komen versterken. Hier een korte introductie van Melissa. En omdat Melissa een Amerikaanse is doen we het in het Engels.

Melissa is the General Manager of CIC Rotterdam, where she's responsible for launching and leading Cambridge Innovation Center’s (CIC) first international location. Their Dutch center has grown to more than 200 innovative startups and larger businesses, in 8,000 m2 of space in the heart of the city. Prior to CIC, Melissa worked for the State of Massachusetts’ leading innovation policy agency, the Mass Tech Collaborative’s John Adams Innovation Institute. There, she developed public-private initiatives to stimulate the state’s tech sector and support entrepreneurship. Following the Innovation Institute, she joined Streetwise Media, a digital media startup focused on local news and events for entrepreneurs and the innovation community. For two years, Melissa helped lead the company’s flagship property in Boston and helped the company grow to three cities. In 2012, the company was acquired by the American City Business Journals, a part of the Condé Nast and Advance Publications family.
