City supports Boston startup jobs
Posted on November 26, 2014
A dozen representatives from Boston startup jobs and companies were hosted at City Hall as part of Boston’s local celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Attendees included company owners and managers of small business incubators, and members of the Mayor’s staff focused on tech and innovation.
Mayor Walsh was joined by representatives of the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) Boston, Highland Capital, MassChallenge, District Hall, WeWork, HourlyNerd, Coalition Boston, Smarter in the City, Workbar, Localytics, and Streetwise Media. A number of Walsh Administration leaders — including representatives from the Mayor’s Office, Department of Innovation Technology, the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, the Economic Development cabinet, Onein3, and others — also participated in this dialogue.
The Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics collaborated with Orange Barrel Media on a celebration of PitchBoston winners at District Hall in the Innovation District. Six local startups debuted their 20 second videos highlighting their local company in the City of Boston. The videos will be featured on the large electronic billboard at District Hall for the next six months.
The winning companies of PitchBoston include:
The Awesome Foundation – funding creative people doing creative things.
CoachUp, Inc. – connecting athletes with private coaches to change lives through sports.
Greycork – a local furniture designer and manufacturing company.
Grove Labs – providing aquaponic food systems for the home.
Kinvey – helping enterprises, agencies, and developers launch more successful and engaging apps.
Ovuline – a pregnancy tracker that helps couples conceive faster and maintain healthier pregnancies.
