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 Cambridge locations. (Some of us even came over from the EmTech MIT 2013 event being held at the MIT Media Lab, just a few blocks away.)
Our featured presenters were:
