Boston World Partnerships

Website: http://bostonworldpartnerships.com

Boston World Partnerships is a non-profit organization, created by Mayor Thomas M. Menino, to raise global awareness of Boston as one of the world's foremost centers of intellectual capital and innovation, offering tremendous competitive advantages to growth-minded businesses. BWP is a public-private partnership, with seed funding from P&G/The Gillette Company and the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
BWP generates high-quality leads for economic growth. Each high-quality lead represents a specific, actionable opportunity to create jobs, attract a business, strengthen an existing Boston business, support entrepreneurship, or enhance workforce development.
To achieve these goals, BWP is creating a global community of people who have ties to Boston's economy, similar to an alumni organization. This network will exist around an information-rich website and an array of social media tools, as well as events here and abroad where Boston professionals can come together to share ideas, insights, and other resources.
