Boston New Technology is a technology and startup community of 12,000+ members, whose mission is to help local startups succeed!
BNT is a forum for entrepreneurs, developers and technology enthusiasts to present and discover new technology products, form partnerships, share ideas and get inspiration to start new ventures. We facilitate and promote networking, education, community-building, opportunity sharing and collaboration among innovators (founders, designers & developers), investors (angels & VC's) and supporters of all kinds (business developers, marketers, consultants, freelancers and others) from all around New England and beyond!
BNT helps early-stage startups get significant publicity and support from the community through our live events, marketing channels and partners. We help our startups engage the community to get buzz, feedback and traction for their products and services, find co-founders, employees, partners and other support they need, and provide them with free, exclusive opportunities and services from our network.
In BNT's 6-year history, we have produced and hosted/co-hosted 93+ free events, including 71+ monthly startup showcases, with over 450 startups presenting! (see "Past Meetups") At showcases, 7 startups present to 150-200 members, giving a brief overview of their technology product, demonstrating it live, and answering questions from attendees. The presentations are preceded by an hour of networking and followed by another half hour of networking.
Consider presenting at Boston New Technology to get publicity and traction for your company's products, services, job openings and/or events, with our 12k members! Qualifying startups can present for free, but we ask established companies to please sponsor BNT, to help us support local startups.
Technology Startups from New England Startups, Founders, Hackers, Nonprofits and other early-stage organizations are welcome to apply to demonstrate their new technology product live at one of our monthly showcase events. Presenting in this fashion is free of charge for New England-based companies with a technology product launched publicly for less than one year, or a product up to 3 years old, having less than $1M in funding and less than $1M total revenue generated. Companies that meet this criteria are given priority for presenting, but those with higher funding or revenue will be given opportunities whenever possible. Generally, the founders and/or creators should present and conduct the live demonstration (more than one team member can participate). Please apply by reviewing and filling out our Presenter Signup Form and review our Guide for Presenters here.
Established or Non-New-England Companies If your company does not qualify as an early-stage startup (as above), please support Boston New Technology's efforts to help local startups succeed! Engage our membership of 12,000+ Boston-area startup founders/employees, developers and IT professionals, community & business leaders and others interested in technology. BNT will provide you with extensive publicity for your company's products, services, job openings and/or events!
Established companies who sponsor BNT can speak at or present their technology at one of our startup showcases, or they can hire BNT to produce and promote a custom event for them. BNT members are most attracted to events that offer networking and education around technology-related and/or startup-related topics. Our newsletters and announcements go out to 12k members and we draw 200-400 RSVP's for our events (see Past Meetups). All sponsor funds are used to support local startups / entrepreneurship, and to run free events.
