Accelerate Celebrates Mass Innovation Night 100 (#MIN100)
July 14, 2017
Accelerate proudly celebrated Mass Innovation Nights’ 100th event (#MIN100) hosted by the Museum of Science. Boston’s community gathered to check out the latest in innovation and MIN100’s theme — space technology. The fun-filled evening included a feature of an indoor lightning storm at the Theater of Electricity and 2-minute pitches from space technology related startups. Among that excitement, in front a live crowd of about 600 people, Accelerate proudly presented BIG checks to our funded Startup Challenge Teams. Participants later enjoyed a Wolfgang Puck catered evening during the showcase of companies exhibiting local innovation.
A huge thank you to Mass Innovation for the opportunity to acknowledge the hard work our students put into their Startup Challenge Teams.
