This week, MIT Sloan Executive Education is hosting Mass Innovation Nights 101 (#MIN101), the Boston region’s premier monthly startup showcase and networking event. This month’s event, to be held on Wednesday, August 9th, will be held at MIT’s Samberg Conference Center and will feature new startups influencing innovation and tackling process improvement.
“Over the last eight years, we’ve built a successful social media-powered group that has worked together to support local entrepreneurs,” said Bobbie Carlton, Founder of Innovation Nights and Innovation Women. “It’s really a great example of how much a group can accomplish working together, without huge budgets and expensive tools.” Carlton adds, “as a major global driver of innovation, MIT is a natural partner for us.”
Free-of-charge and open to the public, monthly Mass Innovation Nights events feature business experts, networking, tabletop demos, and presentations from the winners of an online vote taken before the event. Here are the innovations participating in Mass Innovation Nights 101:
- Openbridge is an integration platform that helps teams harness the power of performance data across a variety of sources, including social networks, video platforms, and web analytics tools.
- TwelveJobs uses detailed information from job seekers and employers to algorithmically help find the perfect match.
- WatchRx uses a smartwatch to help the elderly take their medications on time and to live independently in their homes as long as possible.
