Consider that Massachusetts is #1 in knowledge jobs and high technology businesses on a per capita basis. We have 122 accredited colleges and universities that spend $1.5B annually on research. We are the second largest VC funding hub in the US. In addition, there are a number of organizations which exist to provide advantages to companies and investors in the start-up ecosystem. And like All Raise, many want to specifically help women of all backgrounds to succeed. So, you have communities, information, and mentorship within reach. The secret is to reach. This session will feature leaders from prominent Boston associations serving the start-up ecosystem. Learn about opportunities to engage, build your networks, be in-the-know, and solicit help to fuel your success. The Town Hall discussion will run for an hour. Stay on for some informal networking in Zoom breakout rooms starting at 5pm ET.
