MINFoodie5: Launching New Food and Food Related Products

The highly anticipated Mass Innovation Nights Foodie came to town and boy are we stuffed!  I think we need to find one of the Boston area's new restaurants to launch with us every month!  (Thanks Strega Prime and welcome to the Woburn Tradecenter neighborhood.)  Say nothing of all the amazing new food and food related products.  We even had some old friends and new ones offering additional samples.

Mass Innovation Nights #54 - Workbar Cambridge

Awesome night at Workbar Cambridge!  (You know VentureFizz called us "always great", right?) Lots of folks visiting the Central Square co-working space for the first time. We had some terrific products launching with us and the guests agreed!  Very enthusiastic all around.
The winners of the American Airlines Business Extra points were:

Eone Timepieces
KidNosh
Axvault
Prosperity Candle

Mass Innovation Nights 55 at VMware

Mass Innovation Nights #55 was held at the Kendall Square offices of VMware, the industry-leading virtualization software company.  The company's Cambridge office is primarily a development space, dedicated to creating innovative new products so this was approriate!  For our evening event, we were taking over their conference rooms, hallways and kitchen (which offered a terrific view out over Main Street Cambridge.)  Just down the street from the MIT Coop and the Kendall Square Marriott, it was a terrific convenient location for many of our guests coming from the CIC and other Cambridg

Mass Innovation Nights at Game On Boston - MINFun

Mass Innovation Nights are usually a wild mix of different products - no matter what you do, or are interested in, you can usually find something that pertains to you. Let other events feature row upon row of same old, same old.  We like to mix it up.  Even when we do a theme event, like our Foodie events, there is still a wild array -- a website, a baker, artisanal salts, an app, etc. 

Mass Innovation Nights #49: Back to the Mill

Our 49th event, held at the new offices of Fresh Tilled Soil in Watertown felt like a bit of a return home -- back to a mill where Mass Innovation Nights got its start.  It wasn't the same mill but this one too had the big windows, beautiful high ceilings and exposed brick walls that make such a wonderful backdrop for a new product launch! With a great crowd of social media mavens, we were ready to go.  Thanks to the Watertown Patch (and our usual innovation partners) for helping to promote

Who's a Food NERD?

We're borrowing our blog title from Boston Teawright's Caleb who asked this question when he was presenting his craft tea company at the Microsoft New England Research & Development (NERD) Center.  While NoshOnIt represented the entire breadth and depth of our technology at the event, there is more than one way to be a NERD, and all of the companies, experts and guests could probably display their own brand of nerdiness when it comes to their entrepreneurial venture.  And, heck, when you think about it, we all need technology in some way to support our business venture, whethe

Four Hundred Product Launches Later

You heard correctly.  Four hundred product launches.  400.  4 hundred.  Whoa.  Gotta sit down and catch my breath. MIN40  -- another fantastic, fun night!  Great products -- turned things up to 11 (with an extra product...wait, does this make 401 product launches?)
We'll be collecting the posts, video, pictures, tweets, etc. and putting them right here... an evolving blog post.  Of course, Janet Egan gives us a great event overview, every time! Jen Kaye, from our PR and Marketing team, covered the four featured presenters.

Crowdfunding Innovation

You've heard of Kickstarter, Indiegogo and the crowdfunding craze. Now MIN is getting involved! We're holding a special event on Wednesday September 19th, "Crowdfunding Innovation". Crowdfunding Innovation is designed to help you make sense of what's happening right now in the crowdfunding space. With the passage of the JOBS act, we've seen a surge in crowdfunding -- not yet equity-based (expected next year) but focused on rewards.

Foodie 2012

On what could be called the best date for a food event ("ate, ate" or August eighth), hundreds of innovation supporters crowded the CummingsTradeCenter 128 Atrium to sip, snack and savor local innovation.  The Annual Mass Innovation Nights Foodie event, hosted by Cummings Properties and sponsored by Roche Brothers and Hyperion Law, was a big draw, both for new friends and old.  More than our usual visibility event, MIN41 was notable not just for the food innovation surrounding our hundreds of guests but for the real connections and impact it provided for local businesses.
