Our fourth annual "Women Founders" event was amazing! What a way to kick off WEBOS (Women Entrepreneurs Boston) week! For the first time ever, WeWork, a hip, innovative coworking space, sponsored and hosted the event at their South Station location. This event was extraordinarily special because it took place across four floors. Guests were able to float between the different themed floors to learn about and network with our product launchers.
The 17th floor of 100 Summer Street was jammin' last night. When we were not looking out the windows admiring the gorgeous views (#envious), we were busy networking with the many attendees who came out for MIN #87. Thank you Bullhorn for a great night of innovation! We were honored to be one of Bullhorn's first "public" events to showcase their cool, new headquarters. We had several experts on hand from Bullhorn, ready to share their knowledge on topics ranging from business development to product management to sales engineering.
After a day of identifying challenges, tossing ideas back and forth, and ideation, our intrepid City Starters are presenting their concepts to our judges:
- Katie Stebbins
- Greg Mamet
- Sandra Casagrande
Here's an overview of the teams and their ideas:
How do you spend a beautiful Saturday in Boston's Innovation District? If you are like 100 participants and 40 advisors/mentors, you are participating in CityStart Boston today (Saturday May 30), (or as my iPhone has been correcting it for months during the planning process - City Stars). And anyone who would get up ridiculously early and devote their Saturday to helping their city deserves a big gold star. You can follow along over today and the next three weeks via #citystartboston.
