MITRE Hosts Mass Innovation Nights in Bedford

Woburn, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

BEDFORD, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2016) -  Mass Innovation Nights and MITRE are partnering for the second time to produce the 85th Mass Innovation Nights event (#MIN85). The event will be held on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the MITRE offices in Bedford (202 Burlington Road, Bedford MA). Mass Innovation Nights are free monthly product showcase and networking events in the greater Boston area. To attend, please RSVP.

"Mass Innovation Nights offer a great opportunity for networking with other members of the local innovation community," said Innovation Nights founder Bobbie Carlton. "The event will connect participating startups with potential customers and partners, and raise their visibility through the power of social media."

As a not-for-profit organization that does R&D for the federal government, MITRE is hosting the event to better connect to innovative technologies that might address their government sponsors challenges as well as to showcase their own innovations.

"Innovation in the private sector has great potential to address some of our sponsor's challenges in new ways," said Peter Sherlock, MITRE senior vice president and director of Bedford Operations. "MITRE is working to be a bridge to that innovation on behalf of our sponsors, and MIN is a great way to tap into the right community in Massachusetts. We're excited to build on the success from our first Mass Innovation Night at MITRE in Bedford last year."

The products featured at the event all relate to mobile/cybersecurity and big data/cloud, significant focal points for MITRE. MITRE employees, as well as other experts in business insurance, Internet policy and security research will also be on hand to share their knowledge with attendees. The event will also feature three student-founded startups from Tufts University and Wentworth Institute of Technology.

The event is free to attend and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to RSVP prior to attending and to support local entrepreneurs by helping spread the word about the cool new products they see, either through a blog post, a Tweet, a Facebook Like, or simply by talking about it with a friend.

  • AstraID
