Description: The Boston area has a long history of innovation. It is currently building on that history by encouraging innovation across a variety of sectors -- biotech, robotics, software, data analytics, financial services, and more. But Boston faces competition from other regions, whether well-established like Silicon Valley and up and coming regions seeking a share of growth. 'Start-Up City' brings together entrepreneurs, public officials, and academics to examine Boston's competitive position and consider how the region can encourage additional growth.
