Tech Innovation in Boston & Beyond

REGISTER — Tech Innovation in Boston & Beyond – February 16th.

There is no denying Boston’s profile as an innovation hub is rising- with the likes of Optimus Ride, Drizly and DoorDash calling the city home and more startups popping up in the Seaport District on a monthly basis. But what sets Boston’s tech scene part? Hear from the writer who has covered Boston’s tech and innovation scene for 20+ years and now shares the latest news and best practices for corporate innovation executives at his own organization, along with the head of content at a local venture capital firm with ties to national tech superstars, to get answers to these questions and others, such as what industry will a Boston startup disrupt next?

Join The Publicity Club of New England to hear directly from leading Boston Globe Technology and Innovation Columnist Scott Kirsner and Joseph Flaherty, the direct of content and community at Founder Collective, as they discuss the current state of tech innovation in Boston, what lessons they’ve watched startups learn over the years and how innovative companies get on their radar.

This intimate panel will give attendees the chance to hear directly from those with a pulse on the Boston tech scene and shed light on how we as communicators can better serve leaders in innovation in our own backyard. Time will be reserved at the end for networking and 1:1 Q&A with panelists.
