5 Boston Innovators Group [F.K.A. WebInno] Alum to Keep An Eye On

NextView Ventures Co-Founder & Partner, David Beisel, founded WebInno more than ten years ago. The event, which has been holding quarterly events featuring startup demos to packed venues since 2005 recently rebranded as Boston Innovators Group. The first run under the new name is set to take place a week from today. Expect a BIG turnout, as usual.

This event has seen pitches from some startups that have gone on to do BIG things and we've previously feature those standout alumni, which includes Boston pillar, Localytics.

In recent years, Beisel has continued to handpick some really intriguing startups and that's where I'm focusing today - startups that are not quite FlipKey or DropBox status, but show promise (at least in my eyes) and presented at WebInno within the past couple years (2013 - present).

So, in anticipation of the next BIG Alumni, here are 5 startups you should know about that recently demo'd at WebInno:

flyp is a mobile app that gives you multiple numbers on your smartphone


The Drizly App provides a convenient way for consumers to get beer, wine and liquor delivered to their door in just 20-40 minutes


2015 Graduate of Techstars, ThriveHive is making small business marketing easy


Legal Hero offers businesses vetted lawyers and clearly-priced legal projects through its online portal

Crayon is the visual inspiration platform for marketers

Wondering who the next ThriveHive, Flyp or Localytics will be? I have a good feeling next week's Boston Innovators Group will see at least 2 startups go on to great success. The event takes place on November 19th at District Hall and here are the startups who will be on disaplay:

Driftt | Price Intelligently | CabinetM

Cintell | EAGER | hellotoken | metacog | | DataBox
