Cramer, a brand experience agency with an over thirty year record of helping global companies tell their story, provided attendees with an A+ event experience.
Mass Innovation Nights returned to Lowell for our 95th monthly product launch event- and what a blast it was! As a joint partnership between the City of Lowell and UMass Lowell's iHUb co-working space, MIN95 brought together the entire innovation ecosystem in this bustling Massachusetts town. Of the ten startups demo-ing their products at the event, many of them were great local products benefiting from the awesome resources of our sponsor and venue, the Innovation Hub at UMass Lowell.

This year was Boston's very first winter market at City Hall Plaza, and MIN93 was right in the thick of it! The city pulled out all the stops building a European-style holiday market and winter wonderland. Attendees could wander the rows of chalets, go ice skating, or visit us at Vinopolis! The intimate atmosphere of the wine-tasting tent was quite the location for our consumer products focused event. We had nearly twenty new and alumni startups selling their wares.
