Our December event brought Mass Innovation Nights to WeWork's Mass Ave Cambridge location. Despite the dreary weather, hundreds of attendees came and filled the event space to support the innovation community! The event featured 11 new products from a variety of industries ranging from Reina Valentina's online clothing store to Wasabi's cloud based storage service. Guests were thrilled that Relativity Whiskey, this month’s sponsor, launched and shared samples of their whiskey straight up and as tasty cocktails.
Our November event, Mass Innovation Nights 104, brought us back out to Dassault Systemes/SOLIDWORKS in Waltham for another busy and well-attended event featuring 10 great new products from local innovators. The event featured a variety of hardware and software products, from Coalesce.Info's artificial intelligence search engine for business users to eGreen US' Beacon Smart Lamp. The attendees also had the opportunity to see the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab in person, check out the robots and 3D printers, and learn more about Dassault Systemes' Startup Accelerator.
Our fourth annual "Women Founders" event was amazing! What a way to kick off WEBOS (Women Entrepreneurs Boston) week! For the first time ever, WeWork, a hip, innovative coworking space, sponsored and hosted the event at their South Station location. This event was extraordinarily special because it took place across four floors. Guests were able to float between the different themed floors to learn about and network with our product launchers. The three floor themes were Assistive Technologies, Apps, and Lifestyle & Fashion.
Our first FinTech-themed Mass Innovation Nights was a huge success! This event brought us to District Hall in Boston's Seaport District once again. The room was buzzing with over 300 attendees who came to learn about the 13 FinTech startups.
Our first event with MIT was an absolute success! With a breathtaking view of the Boston skyline as our backdrop, we brought together the innovation community and 10 new startups tackling innovation and process improvement.
MIN 100 was nothing short of amazing! Our special 100th event was one of the largest to date, bringing over 600 people to the Museum of Science. Sponsored by Draper's Sembler office, MIN100 featured several space tech companies and 6 Innovation Nights alumni. To spark things up, the event started in the museum's Theater of Electricity.
Mass Innovation Nights #99 was a smashing success!

Sponsored by Greater Grove Hall Main Streets, #MIN99 featured all African-American and African tech founders. 14 companies showcased their innovative products alongside an enthusiastic group of experts. There was so much local interest and support for the event and product launchers that we featured!
Our third event at MITRE was a huge success! The line was out the door to attend Mass Innovation Nights 98 last night at MITRE in Bedford. Attendees enjoyed the beautiful and spacious event hall of our host and sponsor MITRE, a not-for-profit corporation that runs research and development centers for the federal government. While munching on the delicious food provided by our host, event-goers networked with 11 innovative new startups with products in the IoT space.
While Tuesday saw much of Boston hunkered down to ride out winter storm Stella, Wednesday was all about Mass Innovation Nights 96! Not only did we get #MIN96 trending on twitter, but we got the innovation community to turn up for our event at Cramer in Norwood. Cramer, a brand experience agency with an over thirty year record of helping global companies tell their story, provided attendees with an A+ event experience.
Mass Innovation Nights returned to Lowell for our 95th monthly product launch event- and what a blast it was! As a joint partnership between the City of Lowell and UMass Lowell's iHUb co-working space, MIN95 brought together the entire innovation ecosystem in this bustling Massachusetts town. Of the ten startups demo-ing their products at the event, many of them were great local products benefiting from the awesome resources of our sponsor and venue, the Innovation Hub at UMass Lowell.
