We kicked off the new decade with a new event format, something we will be doing occasionally throughout the year – mixing it up a bit, just to keep things interesting! MIN #130 was in partnership with Innovation Women and took place on Wednesday, January 16th at Workbar’s new location on School Street in Downtown Boston. The format of this special event featured a panel of successful MIN alumni (who all just happen to be women), and breakout sessions with each panelist. The panel was moderated by Innovation Nights’ own, Bobbie Carlton, and Workbar’s CEO, Sarah Travers. All attendees enjoyed the different format and had a great time connecting with the panelists in the breakout sessions. The MIN #130 panel was also live streamed on Introvoke; watch the replay here.
