BostInno’s annual celebration of innovators of all kinds, 50 on Fire, is happening next week. This event, which awards not only startups and entrepreneurs but also innovators across multiple categories, inspired this week’s Startup Saturday blog post. Meet the 150 finalists for 2017.
Check out our roundup of what happened in the startup scene this week:
October was an exciting month here in Boston, and we aren’t just talking about Halloween. Local startups and tech companies made plenty of personnel moves last month, and BostInno shared some of them with its readers. Our client, Crimson Hexagon, expanded its executive leadership and appointed three people to new C-level executive roles: Lou Jordano as chief marketing officer and senior vice president, Bud McGann as chief revenue officer and senior vice president (SVP) of global sales, and Dana Miller as chief customer officer, alongside her current role of SVP of client services.
While some might think of San Francisco or Silicon Valley as the top cities for entrepreneurs and techies alike, a recent report revealed Boston is making some serious moves in the startup game. According to the recently released “2017 Innovation That Matters” report, Boston is ranked No. 1 in the U.S. startup ecosystem.
On Thursday evening, MassChallenge hosted its eighth annual event to award the MassChallenge Boston winners. The event had 1,700 attendees and featured guest speakers such as Governor Charlie Baker and WeWork co-founder and CEO Adam Neumann. The four startups named “highest-impact” companies and awarded $100,000 in prizes were: CozyKin, OffGridBox, Pykus Therapeutics and Vence.
With the Boston startup scene booming this week, we checked out BostInno’s startup accelerators guide to keep up with all of the innovation. There are nearly 50 Greater Boston startup accelerators, incubators and similar support programs for aspiring entrepreneurs – so it’s no wonder Boston is the top place to be!
