Mass Innovation Nights #91 - Women Founders was our annual event featuring women startups, and wow, was it a blast! If you didn't attend, not only did you miss out on meeting 13 incredible female-founded startups, but you also missed the mayor! That's right, THE MAYOR. Marty Walsh made a surprise visit to our event at District Hall to kick off WE BOS Week, the City of Boston's official week-long series of events aimed at increasing opportunities for women in business. Attendees could also speak with other representatives from the city about all that WE BOS has to offer women entrepreneurs. Mass Innovation Nights university partner Babson's WIN Lab, an 8-month long program designed to empower women entrepreneurs, had five of their own companies presenting. Attendees were able to meet a wide array of startups specializing in diverse areas like blood tests, micro-loans, and ice-cream! Experts from Science Club for Girls and Adastra Speech were on hand to tell attendees about their efforts to get more girls excited about STEM and help people improve their speech skills. Our gracious host District Hall provided extra-cheesy pizza and also served as the location for our after-party at their hip restaurant, Gather.
