With so much attention on Cambridge’s Kendall Square and Boston’s Innovation District, it’s easy to forget that there are many exciting and successful tech companies outside of the metropolitan area. One particularly vibrant tech region is the 495 corridor. The towns along 495 house many MassTLC members ranging from emerging startups to longstanding enterprises that helped found the Massachusetts tech economy decades ago. These companies employ thousands of people, with a large concentration focused on software development.
Here are the MassTLC members along 495:
In addition to the many established tech companies on 495, various incubators that support innovation and emerging startups are also located in the area, including:
- Merrimack Valley Sandbox
- Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center
- Tech Sandbox
- Tufts Biotechnology Transfer Center
MassTLC is committed to supporting and growing the tech community on the 495 corridor. Our next event in the area is entitled The Latest Trend for Agility and Rapid Development: DevOps and will be held at IBM’s Littleton facility on November 12th. Spread the word to your colleagues who might be interested in attending.
We also have a challenge for you: Help us strengthen a community that is crucial to the Massachusetts tech economy by sending us your ideas for other topics or events that you would like to see. Please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, if your company is a member of MassTLC and you’re located on 495 but were left off of this list, it’s time for us to update our CRM. Please contact me to make sure that we have all of your up to date information.
