On Cyber Monday 2012, Tech Cocktail hosted a not-to-be-missed Mixer and Sessions hybrid-event in Boston.
Technically the second fact has not happened yet, but we’re not letting technicalities prevent us from putting together a spectacular event for you.
On November 26th, Tech Cocktail is headed to Beantown to showcase a handful of up-and-coming Boston-area startups while learning the secrets of grassroots marketing from the pro’s (more event info here). The event will feature a new action-packed format, but will maintain the intimate Tech Cocktail Mix n’ Mingle feel that make our events one of a kind.
Before the event begins, we want to know what you think – who is Boston’s Hottest Showcasing Startup? Let us know your thoughts by answering the poll at the end of this post (ends at 6:00pm local time on the day of the event). (Startups apply here)
The winner will be announced live at the event and will receive a couple of minutes on stage to pitch their startup in front of all attendees. Don’t miss out.
