GUIDE: How to do a Successful Event in Boston

Greenhorn Connect prides itself on having the most comprehensive calendar and filters through the top suggested events to attend each week on our weekly newsletter. The following is a quick guide to help make your event successful.

4 Events Newcomers Must Attend in Boston

Ok, so you just arrived in Boston and are eager to jump into the startup community but don’t know where to start. Here are four events that you just can’t miss, especially as a newcomer to the startup community:

The Boston Startup Guide - Part II: Finding Mentors

We all get them. Those emails that make you cringe, just a little.  Some brand new entrepreneur emails you for help. You're busy and you're not sure you're the right person to help. They seem like they lack even some of the most basic knowledge to get started.  But they're asking you for help...probably hoping for a meeting or maybe an intro to a trusted contact.

In Boston, we have a habit of just wanting to click the delete button on such messages, or simply declining citing a desire to "focus on my startup" right now or just not being "the right person." We can do better than that. If you really can't take the meeting, let's leave each of these new entrepreneurs pointed in the right direction. The Boston Startup Guide is here to help you do that. 

In Part II, we're covering what to do when a new entrepreneur is looking for mentors and you can't help them yourself.  There are great things you can point them to and we're going to share them with you so you can copy and paste them in your next message, so you can say still help them even if you can't take that meeting.

7 Tips for Planning an Event When You Have No Time

Entrepreneurs are all about solving problems. They also have a strong "work hard, play hard" attitude. Those two traits can often put you in the position of wanting to take on a side project to put on an event for the startup community. Whether you want to educate them like we are with RamenCamp this weekend, or throwing an epic party like #RubyRiot last night, the limiting factor can often be how much time you can devote to it.  

Having run Greenhorn Connect while working at oneforty and still found time to organize two big events (d8event in February, and the aforementioned RamenCamp), I'd like to share a few tips on how you can plan a great event even when you have no time. Read More...
