Our 50th Mass Innovation Nights event celebrated the first 500 product launches in grand style in partnership with the Boston Globe, Boston.com and The Hive as our hosts. We were able to bring back 15 of our favorite products and see how far they have come in the time since they participated in their first Mass Innovation Nights. It was terrific to hear about the progress that has been made and how our Innovation Nights community has made a difference.
Four years ago we launched a website and offered to throw a product launch party for local companies with new products. We figured we'd get some of our social media friends to help spread the word, Tweet, Like and maybe post some video and pictures. Four years later, we found ourselves at the Lansdowne Pub in Boston, doing the same thing, but with a crop of exciting new products. Big thanks to the team at the Lansdowne Pub for making it all possible! What great hosts! Did you like their apps? (No, not mobile apps but appetizers!)
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.

Our first Mass Innovation Nights event of 2013 was pretty darned awesome and also the third anniversary of the first nomadic Mass Innovation Nights. The first year of our monthly product launch parties had all been at the Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation and in January of 2010, we "roamed" out to the IBM Innovation Center. It started something. We now roam pretty much all the time. (Our schedule for 2013 makes us look like a ping pong ball! Fun stuff.)
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?)
The Dorchester Bay Economic Development Corporation is having their annual fundraiser on Thursday, April 26, 2012, and celebrating their 33rd Anniversary by honoring Thomas M. Menino, Marty Jones, President and CEO of MassDevelopment, and the Bornstein Family.
While Mass Innovation Nights is often chock full of startups launching new products, our mission is not exclusively startup focused. IBM has launched six products with us, Intuit launched a product with us, Acquia, Brainshark, Continuum, LogMeIn, Percussion, VideoLink, and the Company formerly known as Novell launched two products with us. These companies are far from startups.
Big thank you to everyone who joined us at the IBM Innovation Center to kick off 2012 with a look at a great group of new products. Now get out there and help spread the word! We had a fantastic group and the poor weather held off so everyone was able to get there and home just fine. Thanks especially to our car poolers!
Thanks to all of you who ventured out to Concord for our July Innovation Night event! Special thanks to Isabella Products and the Wheelhouse for hosting us. We’ll be posting links to your #MIN28 Tweets, blog posts, and pictures soon. Meanwhile, can you find yourself in the crowd here? We’ll be contacting the winner of the Edible Arrangements New England gift certificate and announcing that in Monday’s newsletter.
