Mass Innovation Nights #55 was held at the Kendall Square offices of VMware, the industry-leading virtualization software company.

The highly anticipated Mass Innovation Nights Foodie came to town and boy are we stuffed! I think we need to find one of the Boston area's new restaurants to launch with us every month!

Every Mass Innovation Nights is a wonderful opportunity to connect with other members of our community. Connecting job seekers and those looking to hire is one of our favorite uses for networking. We also hand out little red stickers for the name badges of those looking to hire at every event. We've noticed those stickers getting more and more popular at the recent events.
