Another landmark Boston event in the books.
This afternoon, January 17th, scores of Boston’s brightest investors and up-and-coming entrepreneurs gathered at Facebook’s Cambridge offices for an afternoon of conversation, feedback, and burritos.
We have to thank AWS for powering such an awesome event, and Facebook for sharing their brand new Cambridge event space with us!
The 58 founders in the room were selected by a committee of investors after reviewing over 200 applications from early stage founders across the globe.
Unpitch Tech opened with mingling and a burrito buffet at Facebook’s sleek office. As the investors and founders poured in, the NEVCA’s own Ari Glantz opened the event with a welcoming address.
We offer this event year after year because we believe in the value of real, meaningful conversations between investors and entrepreneurs — without the constraints and pressure of pitch decks or monetary asks. But enough from us! Get the scoop on Unpitch Tech straight from the floor:
