KSA Third Thursday Happenings at CIC and Venture Cafe
Thursday, April 19, 2012 at 5:30 PM (EDT)
Come to the Kendall Square Association's April Third Thursday event on Thursday, April 19th starting at 5:30 p.m. at Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC). Find out about this unique institution that is helping to drive innovation in Kendall Square. CIC houses approximately 450 startup companies at One Broadway*. We are told that CIC has more startups under one roof than any other building anywhere on the plant. Learn about CIC and what is happening in this cauldron of innovation and entrepreneurship, and then join us for beverages, courtesy of Venture Cafe, the largest weekly social gathering of entrepreneurs in New England. Venture Cafe operates inside CIC every Thursday from 3:00-8:00 p.m.
On behalf of the KSA's Community Outreach Program, you will also be able to meet The Possible Project, a Cambridge-based non-profit serving high school students who have untapped potential but face multiple barriers to success. TPP offers a year-long program for students to learn the basics of business and entrepreneurship; conceive, launch, and run their own businesses; work for one of TPP's in-house businesses; and take part in workshops, events and job shadowing to learn crucial 21st century skills.
April 19th is the date for KSA's Third Thursday. Please meet in the ground floor at One Broadway at 5:30 -- due to the nature of this event, it will be difficult for latecomers to fully participate. If you are not available at 5:30p, you may meet up with the group directly in Venture Cafe at 6:15p.
We look forward to seeing you at CIC!
