Mass Innovation Nights #109 brought us to District Hall, Boston's public home for innovation, to celebrate MIN's 9th birthday! Two hundred attendees came to celebrate with us. Ten AI and robotics companies kicked off National Robotics Week in Boston. Experts of the night were Greg Smith, Director of the SOLIDWORKS for Entrepreneurs Program, Abhishek Bali from the Dassault Systèmes 3D Lab, Hanna Yoon from Mass & Daegu Robotics, Chang Ho Kim, Chairman from REPA, Chris Akins from Insperity, Jennifer Itzkoff from Womble Bond Dickinson, and Nick Bliamptis from Facet Executive Search. Mass Daegu Robotics and Korean delegates generously sponsored food for the event.
While all products at MIN #109 were robotics and AI-based, they still represented a diverse scope of interests; startups included everything from machine learning that enables environmental conservation and renewable energy (Upstream), to leak detection robots (Pipeguard Robotics), to an eCommerce AI platform (Voysis Commerce).
