Mass Innovation Nights Celebrates 100 Events

Partnership with Draper's Sembler Office and the Museum of Science Innovators

Woburn, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2017) - Mass Innovation Nights (MIN) is celebrating its 100th event with a special night at the Museum of Science, sponsored by Draper's Sembler Office, and hosted by the Museum of Science Innovators. The event will be held July 12, 2017, 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm and will feature a number of local space tech companies as well as several alumni.

"Innovation Nights started as an experiment in the power of social media marketing but it has turned into a powerful community, dedicated to supporting local startups and entrepreneurs," said Bobbie Carlton, the founder of Innovation Nights. "Every month I continue to be amazed, and thankful, for the continued support of our community. We couldn't have launched more than 1000 products without the support of Boston's leading companies, co-working spaces, service providers, government officials and more."

"We're sponsoring this event because we believe in the importance of an integrated innovation community," said Nathan Wiedenman, director of the Sembler office at Draper. "Sembler is Draper's way of fostering the development of technology entrepreneurs by giving them a way to leverage Draper's extensive resources and 80+ years of expertise in solving the world's toughest engineering problems."

"Teaming up with Mass Innovation Nights to celebrate this milestone is a natural extension of the Museum of Science mission," said Todd Sperry, senior vice president of Marketing Strategy and Communication. "We're thrilled this event is taking place here at the Museum and will connect the Mass Innovation Nights community with the Museum's Innovators group, who works to expand their knowledge of science and technology with others by connecting with local leaders in innovation."

Free-of-charge and open to the public, Mass Innovation Nights 100 features startup experts and networking, as well as tabletop demonstrations and presentations from the participating companies. In addition, attendees will be able to enjoy the exhibits in the Museum's Blue Wing and the Museum's Theater of Electricity. The featured companies will include:
