The current economic crisis is an enormous opportunity in disguise. Technology is converging across industries and transforming the way we do business. Shifting technology has rendered many business models obsolete, and has left millions of people unemployed and thousands of offices empty. These are the very raw materials required for new business generation, and technological advancement is also enabling whole new categories of businesses. As a result, MassChallenge, the world’s largest start-up competition, was conceived to catalyze a global startup renaissance, promote innovation and collaboration, address the seed-stage investment gap by empowering novice entrepreneurs, provide educational opportunities for entrepreneurs and showcase entrepreneurship assets and infrastructure locally and nationally.
Please join us on December 13 for a revealing conversation with some of the winners and finalists of the recently completed MassChallenge. Come learn what is going on in the world of innovation!
