Mass Innovation Nights Foodie 11 was another delicious success! The event last night in Somerville featured 10 innovative food themed startups demo-ing their products and sampling their tasty treats. We had everything from mobile apps creating ways to find local food spots to creative new ways to plant seeds to New Orleans-inspired cold-brewed coffee. All ten products packed the space at ONCE Somerville. If you've never been, we'd definitely recommend!
Located on the top floor of the beautiful Landmark Center, our host Hatch Fenway was the perfect space for a MIN Foodie event. With a great view of Fenway Park and downtown Boston, our presenters enjoyed the spacious event room and the chance to use Hatch's indoor swing set. Even with all the event space, it was packed! We had 11 food and food-tech startups showcasing, as well as four experts sharing their knowledge with our many attendees.
When you want to show off Boston's Home for Innovation, District Hall, what better way to do it than "Gather" a bunch of food entrepreneurs?
Our baker's dozen of food entrepreneurs showed off everything from Veggie Fries to Pizza the app, from a way to close up a soda can (The Cappy) to CogniTea (a way of life and tea), from Haitian relish (SPICY Craic and Blonde) to beautiful salts from Afar. We had Chef Set Meals and Undiscovered Kitchens, EnerChi Bites and Mohka Origin coffee. DrinkMaple and Phfeast.
Congrats to our winners! These products were your favorites:
Sponsored by our friends from the North, the Canadian Consulate General, and hosted at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, our sixth special Foodie event was a smashing success -- more elegant than a Mass Innovation Nights had any right to be. With expectations high (yes, we did have to shut down RSVPs early after we exceeded our space limitations), we knew it was going to be a winner of a night. Words can not describe...
