Platform supports Boston startup jobs
Posted on November 5, 2015
A new platform is supporting Boston startup jobs.
StartHub is a comprehensive, centralized, online platform designed to connect, support, and grow Greater Boston’s world-class technology and early-stage community. Developed in a public-private partnership between the City of Boston, Venture Café, IBM, and Gust, StartHub will serve as the homepage for Greater Boston’s startup community, providing information and resources that will help connect the people of Boston to all the opportunities in the region’s ecosystem.
Announced by Mayor Walsh in his 2015 State of the City Address, StartHub is built to support and grow Greater Boston’s burgeoning innovation economy into a world-class leader. Visitors to StartHub will have simultaneous access to a curated stream of Boston-based startup companies and early-stage investors; information on career opportunities and educational courses; the universal calendar for tech and startup community events; the complete guide to co-working and incubator spaces; news about the Boston digital and startup community; and additional features, all in one accessible, centralized location. StartHub is designed to spur economic growth by connecting potential business partners and fostering a thriving startup community.
“Venture Café is proud to be partnering with the City of Boston and Gust to offer StartHub as a startup resource center for the Greater Boston region,” said Kevin Wiant, Executive Director of the Venture Café Foundation. “We strive to connect all parts of the innovation community to help start and grow businesses. StartHub will be a great tool for entrepreneurs to find programs, events, funding sources, prospective employees, guidance and general support for their startups. We also look forward to working with many other content partners that will help populate the site. Our objective is that all parts of the innovation ecosystem see increased activity from StartHub.”
“Boston is a city known for its creative talent and innovative spirit, and I am proud to announce the launch of StartHub which will connect entrepreneurs and innovators with the tools and resources they need to grow and thrive in the City of Boston,” said Mayor Walsh. “I am excited to offer our startup community this centralized online platform and I thank all of the partners for their collaboration as we continue to establish Boston as a hub of entrepreneurship.”
