They came, they saw, they got their money’s worth.
XSITE 2013, our fifth annual flagship innovation conference, did not disappoint. The theme was Boston’s Tech Revival. And between laying out the Boston tech scene’s strengths and weaknesses, lessons from the MIT Blackjack team applied to building companies, and hearing pitches from 10 emerging startups and projects from around the area, our audience was treated to a dazzling display of the momentum (and challenges) that New England has amassed across fields such as education, security, healthtech, marketing, mobile software, and hardware design.
Huge thanks to our event hosts, Babson College and Olin College, and to our sponsors: The Kauffman Foundation, WilmerHale, Comcast Business, IDA Ireland, and MFA (Moody, Famiglietti & Andronico). Thanks also to our event supporters—Covestor, Mintz Levin, and Sand Hill Finance—and to our media sponsor, WGBH Radio, and our event partners MassTLC, New England Venture Capital Association, and TiE Boston.
