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 #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

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. 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 t
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.
