GH: Who should come to Boston TechJam

Boston TechJam is open to everyone! Expect a mix of technology enthusiasts from across the local ecosystem—from our largest companies to our startups.  You’ll meet entrepreneurs, developers, marketing and sales professionals, venture capitalists, and students.

GH: How did Boston TechJam get started?

Boston is such a great place to start and grow a business but we don’t do enough to celebrate our successes.  TechJam was an idea to bring together the entire community to not only celebrate but also help accelerate our businesses by connecting people in a casual, fun environment.  It started in a small parking lot in the Seaport and now is the tech event of the year! On June 14th we expect more than 7,000 people to take over City Hall Plaza for a great night of networking, tech, games, food, beer and music!

 

GH: What did you learn from the first Boston TechJam?

We learned that we have a very close-knit, supportive, and fun tech community here in Massachusetts and that people enjoy showing it off to the world.

GH: What can people expect at this year’s Boston TechJam?

You’ll have to come see for yourself! There will be plenty of fun, prizes, drinks, food & fun!

GH: What does the future hold for Boston TechJam?

Every year gets bigger and better! We’re always open to suggestions from the community, so send us your thoughts on what you’d like to see happen in coming years.
