Boston Startup Week - Navigating the Boston Tech Scene
The Boston tech scene is thriving. There are so many companies, so many things to do, and so many people to know. It can be hard to get your head wrapped around it all.
This talk will help simplify it for you. The goal is to help you navigate the Boston tech ecosystem and ultimately answer questions like:
* Who are the VCs making investments and at what stage?
* What are some of the different products being built in the area?
* Who are the anchor companies?
* Who are the up & coming companies in the area?
* What events should you attend?
* Who is on the short list of people you should know or follow?
This event is part of the Hot Industries Track at Boston Startup Week.
