Join us for this inaugural tech BLOCK PARTY event to celebrate and accelerate innovation in Massachusetts. Hang out with more than 1000 of your closest friends with bands, beer, food and more!
On October 3rd, 2013, Boston-area companies, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, students and industry associations will come together for the inaugural Boston TechJam, a block party celebrating Boston’s tech industry leadership and status as a cradle of innovation.
Billed as a showcase for 21st century business development and growth, Boston TechJam will connect students from our world-class higher learning institutions, entrepreneurs, business leaders, venture capitalists and incubators in a fun, supportive environment that celebrates everything about starting and building thriving businesses in the State of Massachusetts.
“I’m delighted to welcome Boston TechJam to District Hall in the Innovation District,” said Mayor Thomas M. Menino. “Events like these that bring area entrepreneurs together strengthen Boston’s vibrant tech and innovation economies by building social infrastructure and creating new partnerships.”
Located at and around District Hall in Boston’s “Innovation District” from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Boston TechJam invites the innovation community out to rub elbows, network in a whole new way, check out new startups and tech products, and develop new business relationships in a street party atmosphere unique to Boston. Boston TechJam will feature live music, local craft beer producers, food trucks and inspiring local artists to help make this first party one to remember.
The event will also feature a panel of leading Boston venture capitalists and experienced entrepreneurs in a “Shark Tank”-like event where startups and entrepreneurs are invited to test their company pitches and ideas and get exposed to potential investors.
It should be a great event with 100% of the proceeds going to a non-profit funding technology education in Mass public schools.
