MassTLC Posted 03.16.17

BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – Mar 16, 2017) – The NewCo Boston Festival is back — and bigger. Expanded from one to two days this year, the April 5-6 celebration will feature dozens of presentations and demonstrations highlighting the region’s dynamic business community encompassing technology, fitness, consumer, healthcare, education, cleantech, and more. The event also includes career-focused open houses to help students and job seekers looking for advice and opportunities.

Hosted by the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC), NewCo Boston comprises more than 85 of Massachusetts’ leading companies throughout the Greater Boston area, including open houses and demonstrations from companies such as:

  • Black Duck Software, developer of automated solutions for securing and managing open source software
  • One Door, whose software helps leading retailers tell great stories through collaboration, localization and simplification
  • Oxfam America, a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty;
  • Piaggio Fast Forward, developer of lightweight, intelligent and autonomous mobility solutions for people and goods
  • PTC, a global provider of design and engineering technologies for CAD, IoT, Augmented Reality and other industrial, commercial and business platforms
  • Ras Labs, a medical technology company building products that heal and save lives, including electroactive polymer (EAP)-based Synthetic Muscleâ„¢
  • Wayfair, one of the world’s largest and most innovative online destinations for the home

“It’s easy to take for granted that Massachusetts exemplifies one of the most vibrant and innovative economies in the world,” said MassTLC President and CEO Tom Hopcroft. “It’s important, though, to recognize the people behind all these game-changing companies. We’re hosting NewCo again this year as a way to open the doors and invite the public in to meet all these innovators, hear about their dreams and aspirations, and experience the products and services they’ve developed.

“NewCo Boston is our way of encouraging the talented people of Massachusetts, including the thousands of students who come here to be educated in some of the world’s finest schools and universities, to witness first-hand all the compelling reasons there are to stay and continue to be a part of our innovation ecosystem.”

NewCo Boston attendees will select which companies they visit in their “native habitat,” and hear first-hand from the founders and executives about how and why they are working to change the world. Prior to the event, participants can visit the NewCo Boston website to customize their own event schedules from “tracks” curated by industry, neighborhood and session topic. Space is limited and sessions are filling up quickly.
