Join Mayor Martin J. Walsh, in partnership with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, as he hosts the first-ever Courtyard Festival, a one night speaker event at City Hall Plaza that will explore the ways startups and new technologies will shape the future of Boston.

Featured speakers include:

Courtyard Festival will kick off at 5 p.m. with a performance by the Soul Monstahs, an alumni band from Berklee College of Music. From 5 p.m. - 7 p.m., attendees can also view a showcase of startups in the Boston innovation community. The speaking program begins at 5:30 p.m.

In collaboration with the Mayor’s Operations Cabinet, Courtyard Festival will activate the fourth floor courtyard of City Hall, making it an exciting new space to bring together people to connect and share ideas.

During Courtyard Festival, 6 distinct keynote speakers from the fields of robotics, mobility, agriculture, sports innovation and creative work will give short talks about their innovative products. Each speaker will reference why Boston was essential to creating and sustaining their product, and how their product can make a positive impact in the City.

Justin Kang vice president of Strategy & Growth for the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, and executive director of City Awake, the Chamber’s civic innovation lab, will deliver the concluding remarks at Courtyard Festival. The Chamber advocates for businesses at every stage of growth, and Courtyard Festival is another way the Chamber is working with the city to highlight Boston as a leading city for entrepreneurs and startups.
