VentureFizz strives to be your one-stop shop for the Boston Tech Scene. Our calendar is stockpiled with classes and events for Boston entrepreneurs to learn and network. They all deserve their due, but I want to highlight a few lined up for next week to help you schedule accordingly.  Rework that schedule of yours and get out to some of these events!



  • General Assembly Summer Business Bootcamp: Build vs. Buy vs. Partner. Every business model has gaps. The success of a business idea rests on identifying these gaps early on and remedying them.



  • Head to Microsoft NERD at 8:00 AM to interact with your peers at the monthly Boston TechBreakfast.
  • The JOBS Act is here, and now investors, entrepreneurs, and the rest of the startup community have to figure out what this means. The Capital Network holding this one at CIC at 8:30 AM.



  • Startup Institute TalentExpo - If you're looking to build your team with fresh talent or want to meet some of Boston's best startups and the people behind them, this is the event for you. 10AM at Harvard iLab.
