The Canopy Startup Sessions are held once per month and feature up to six tech and life sciences focused startup companies. The focus of the event is to help early stage founders validate and iterate their ideas. (Investors also view the event as a great forum to scout for early stage ideas.)
Each company demonstrates their idea, business model or prototype. After the demonstration, audience members are encouraged to ask questions, give feedback and support the founder in their journey.
The theme for our April 25th Startup Session is Recreation- and Medical- Marijuana focused startups. Food, beer, wine and N/A beverages will be served.
Food sponsored by Flatbread Pizza, Somerville.

When & Where
Canopy City is a startup- and social impact- focused coworking space and accelerator based in Somerville, Massachusetts, and Exeter, United Kingdom.
Our mission is to create a more inclusive innovation community that leverages interconnectedness to solve local and global challenges.
What makes the Canopy City experience unique is the organically-grown diversity of our community. Our membership base is comprised of entrepreneurs, engineers, policy makers, artists and academics--among others--who have harnessed the dynamic of cross-pollination to advance their vision.
We wholeheartedly believe that when we draw together brilliant people from different realms, (for example, the startup, public policy and academic communities,) who care about the same things and who are seeking solutions to big challenges, that magic can happen.
Above all, we're dedicated to creating an inclusive climate of collaboration, inspiration and shared purpose to elevate and accelerate the missions of our members.
At Canopy, we believe that any individual who takes a leap to launch a vision at great personal and financial risk is also a startup, and we are here to provide support and a welcoming atmosphere for those who dare to be so bold.
