The Revolutionary War Started in Massachusetts to Shape America.
A New Revolution in Boston Is Going To Change The Way We Do Business.
This past week, MITX sponsored the FutureM event as a way to bring people from different industries in marketing to meet, network and learn from others in the start-up community. It was also an occasion for existing business to learn how marketing will be central to the growth of our future economy using many tools from mobile applications to social media. Yet, still many marketers are not familiar the best course of action for implementing their programs across these new mediums and attended this event to learn better practices to reach audiences.
The future of doing business is brewing in Boston, as it’s own digital revolution battles against Silicon Valley start-ups and is becoming a place for great talent to continue to thrive and come together. The trend would be that many people from across the world would take advantage of the institutions across this great State of Massachusetts to eventually leave, to as one might say, “Go West, my friend,” to find new hope and opportunities for business growth in technology. A few years ago, Jeff Bussgang created StayInMA, as an organization to help students attending and graduating many of the universities across the area to help support their dreams, collaborate with area resources such as MITX and others, as well as provide financial assistance to attend many informative events in the area. Since the economy took a turn for the worst and has impacted many of all ages, the people of Boston have rallied together in a battle to keep the dream alive and support new business initiatives. I’ve come to known many of the people involved with Mass Innovation Nights, Brew Boston, Mass HighTech, MassChallenge, GreenHorn Connect, Bostinnovation, DartBoston, Future Forward events and others, that are helping to generate buzz in Boston that germinates growth in the area to build a new revolution for others to follow.
