Additions to Hitchhiker Guide 2011
Earlier this year, I published our annual "Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Boston Entrepreneurial Community"
I’ve also been going around town handing out hard copies as well.
As with all good things, there has been new exciting things popping up that I am very excited about. So I thought I’d discuss a few major additions to the guide:
This is a pseudo mysterious event being planned by Matt Lauzon, Cort Johnson, and John Clark for May 17. I suspect this will be the first of a series of really excellent events that will bring together the most active members of the entrepreneurial community in a unique “pay-it-forward” event. Sign up here! Knowing the folks involved and some of the planning, it will be THE event of the quarter.
2. Founder Mentors
A unique program created by Sean Lindsay, the CTO of Viximo. This is in line with my earlier blog post about Golazo - the program is focused on helping entrepreneurs develop a structured and impactful relationship with some outstanding experienced entrepreneur mentors. Apply here!
3. Angel Boot Camp
Last year, Jon Pierce put together a remarkable event to spur more smart angel investment activity in the Boston area. It drew an amazingly high-density of successful entrepreneurs and investors in one day of unique and inspiring content. It was definitely one of the most impactful events of 2010, and this year’s bootcamp is sure to be even better. Invite request here!
Lots more new stuff going on, but there are the biggies that really should not go unnoticed!
