Boston was considered by many as “Silicon Valley before Silicon Valley existed.” The startup community is anchored by some key venture funds and angel investors. So we are excited to be hosting our fourth TECH cocktail Boston mixer event on Thursday, July 29th. The event will take place in the Microsoft New England Research & Development Center (NERD) and will showcase some of the freshest technology startup companies in the area. Other local technology companies will also be on hand to show off their stuff as we rally the community together.
Helping Startups Get Exposure – TECH cocktail offers a handful of startups an opportunity to show off in an expo-style to the rest of the Boston entrepreneurial community for FREE. Past events have showcased startups such as: SCVNGR, BandsInTown, OneForty, BuySellAds.com, Shareaholic, HaveMyShift, Totspot, YouCastr and more.
Connecting Startups and Investors – To continue to add value and stay true to our “cocktail mixer of tech people” theme, we are calling all New England entrepreneurs looking for seed funding or angel investors as we will be trying to help match local startups with local seed or angel investors. If you are an angel investor interested in finding additional deal flow we look to help you too. We know that this type of connection has happened naturally at our events in the past, but we want to help water the seeds a bit and ensure that the fruit of our labor is a better connected entrepreneurial community. Follow the appropriate link below:

If you are a company looking to hire, you can also leverage the TECH cocktail job board to get the message out early – or you could sponsor the event and use it as your own personal job fair.
