By: Ali Keppler As I sit here alternating between reading the local news, writing this blog and looking out my window at the snow, I find myself remembering an important truth: entrepreneurs don’t get snow days. Or weekends. Or usually any vacation at all, at least in the early years. These individuals go at it 24/7 in the relentless pursuit of making a business vision a reality. Hats off to all who fall into that category – and let’s see what our local entrepreneurial scene has been up to. BostInno: How Tufts Is Using Innovation to Unite Its Three Campuses

There may be an end in sight for those who are tired of today’s limited Internet options. Starry offers an antenna that attaches outside your house for Wi-Fi of up to 1 gigabyte per second.

Co-working community WeWork may be getting bigger. The company currently has space in Fort Point and near South Station, but a property under discussion in Back Bay would add another 84,000 square feet to the company’s owned space. The other locations have been known to include excellent swings in place of normal chairs, so…that’s something for WeWork to keep in mind if the new branch works out.
