Four of us headed over to Mass Challenge’s Launch Party at the Landmark Center this evening, to celebrate today’s opening of their application for MC Boston 2018. I was a little surprised that the line to get your name badge upon arrival, even with pre-registration, snaked around so far that we were told to just start networking and come back later when the line died down. There must have been 300+ people. We had a fantastic time, met interesting people including startups, mentors, etc, and learned about the application process and meeting more people in the Boston startup ecosystem. Apparently Boston is the #1 place for startups (according to some journalist somewhere). Woohoo! We got some tips on the application (show impact) and a discount for the fee (nice). Thanks for the free food, drinks, (parking validation), and venue. Nicely done.
