TONIGHT'S EVENT IS SOLD OUT
Network with Newton-Needham tech leaders on Weds. Oct. 23
We're launching a new initiative to promote the Newton-Needham area as a destination for technology companies, start-ups and other innovators.
We’re calling it the N2 Innovation Corridor and throwing a cocktail party to get the conversation started.
If you're an entrepreneur , an innovator, a decision maker, a developer, work in high tech, life sciences, for a start-up, or even an established firm and are interested helping shape this vision, this event is for you.
You don't even have to be from or work in Newton or Needham to participate.
There will be a few brief welcome speeches. But the real focus will be on networking as we discuss the benefits, opportunities and challenges of doing business in this region.
Are you in?
When & Where
The Chamber is organizing this but it's really a coatlition of business leaders, innovators, developers, local and state officials who are behind this initiative to promote the Newton-Needham area as a destination for technology companies, start-ups and other innovators.
The idea for the Oct. 23 meetup sprung from a conversation between Newton Mayor Setti Warren and Greg Bialecki, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, under Gov. Deval Patrick.
The steering committee is co-chaired by Devra Bailin, Economic Development Director for the Town of Needham; Candace Havens, Director of Planning and Development for the City of Newton; Geoff Kravitz, Deputy Chief of Staff for Office of Housing and Economic Development; and Greg Reibman, President of the Newton-Needham Chamber.
Other partners include TripAdvisor, Normandy Real Estate Partners, The Bulfinch Companies, HB Agency, MITX, Fairway Independent Mortgage, Dunn-Gaherins and Wegman's.
