Mass Innovation Nights 80 - Autodesk

Despite some rainy weather, the innovation community still showed up in force to help Mass Innovation Nights launch some awesome new products at MIN80. Our 80th event saw us returning to Autodesk offices in Waltham, a beautiful space that really showcases the company's awesome abilities. If you made it to the event, we're sure you took a stroll through their museum-like lobby and took in all the impressive minature models, small-scale building replicas and displays. Autodesk was very generous to our guests - providing plenty of pizza, salad, and refreshments and access to their coffee bar.

Mass Innovation Nights 76 - MITRE in Bedford

We had an incredible time at MITRE for Mass Innovation Nights #76! The atrium inside one of the mid-century modern style buildings provided a perfect backdrop that beautifully juxtaposed the new technologies featured at the event. Barry Costa, Rob McCready, Robert A. Martin, Steve Foote, and Dan Hoag from MITRE were our experts for the event, shared their insight about Health IT and Cybersecurity, our theme for the night.

Thanks again to MITRE for hosting the event and for working with us to make it all happen!

Mass Innovation Nights #75 couldn’t have gone better! Our sponsor and host, Google, offered an amazing set up at their Cambridge location – from the modern furniture in the lobby, the hardwood floors sourced from an old mill in Seattle, to the beautifully manicured rooftop garden. Product launchers and guests alike were in awe of the space throughout the night (as were we!). Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash made a special appearance to talk about the importance of civic technology, the theme of the event.
