Mass Innovation Nights are hosted at a variety of locations. Wednesday’s event took place at Workbar in Cambridge, MA.
Bobbie Carlton is one of the founders of Mass Innovation Nights, which started in 2009. “This MIN features all women-founded companies.” Bobbie explained.
During a time of networking and refreshments, companies set up displays around the room to show off their ideas and innovations. This display is Orora Global, a company dedicated to providing renewable energy to communities worldwide.
Eric Tracey is an MBA student who came to the Mass Innovation Night looking for potential career opportunities. “It’s great to have the chance to network with some up and coming innovative companies.” says Eric.
Meet Brianna Stiklickas and her hedgehog, Eugene. Brianna was chosen as one of two student companies sponsored for the evening. Brianna is a student at Babson College, and is Founder and CEO of Meet Eugene, Inc. “Meet Eugene is an exotic pet food company with a focus on hedgehog food.” she says.
After having a chance to network, the crowd gathers to hear presentations from each of the companies.
I had the opportunity to check out Mass Innovation Nights (MIN) this week. MIN started in 2009, and gives local entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their ideas and innovations and gain more visibility for their projects, products, and brands. MIN take place at various different locations in the Boston area. Wednesday’s event was held in Cambridge, MA at Workbar. The evening started with some refreshments and networking with companies who had set up displays around the room. There were a variety of companies including Booze Époque, Orora Global, Meet Eugene, ReFleece, and more. This particular Mass Innovation Night, which was the 67th installment, featured all women-founded businesses. After a networking period, some of the guest companies gave presentations about their products for the crowd. The event was very well organized, and I had a great time networking and learning about some very interesting and innovative new companies and products.
