Close to 300 people crowded into Microsoft NERD for this month's Tech Tuesday. In the spirit of Innovation Month, MassTLC unveiled plans for its Innovation 2010 unConference. Now in its third year, Bill Warner, Council Trustee and Chief Architect of the event, outlined some key enhancements to the program including:
- a "bigger tent" expecting to grow by almost 50% to over 600 attendees;
- increased collaboration with more entrepreneurial organizations including MassChallenge and the MIT Enterprise Forum;
- moving from the suburbs to Boston/Cambridge locations that are accessible by the T; and
- expanding the program over three days - beginning with a pre-party on October 13th followed by unConference sessions and entrepreneur meetings on the 14th and 15th.
MassTLC opened the Entrepreneur Scholarship applications and general admission at the event. Entrepreneurs accepted for scholarships will have much of their admission underwritten by our sponsors and will receive private one-on-one meetings with investors and other experts who can help them move their ideas and companies forward. Interested entrepreneurs should apply online.
Special thanks to our sponsors: Microsoft, WilmerHale, and Google Ventures; and our organizational partners: MassChallenge and MIT Enterprise Forum. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting Heather Johnson.
