Many in the WaldenTech extended family are aware of Walden’s involvement with TechSandBox. I have served on the IT Special Interest Group (SIG) and recruited members for other SIGs, and can frequently be seen at the space working with WaldenTech client, StorMagic, or volunteering at events.
TechSandBox exists to meet the needs of entrepreneurs and startups in the Metrowest to Worcester area. It’s similar in some ways to the incubators in Boston and Cambridge. For those that live west of Boston, it provides many of the same benefits, without the major hassle factor of driving to Boston or Cambridge in rush hour traffic.
This week there will be two opportunities to get involved. The first is a Call for Volunteers on Wednesday, August 13, at 6:00pm. A new Software SIG is forming, covering Edtech, IT, analytics, applications, and mobile apps. You can register to attend here. It’s an opportunity to provide input to the founders and to see if being on the steering committee appeals to you.
The second is the Roving Innovation Breakfast, which will be on Friday, August 15, at 8:30AM. Its founders, which include Bobbie Carlton, describe Innovation Breakfasts as the early-morning cousin to Innovation Nights. Innovation Breakfasts are held throughout the eastern half of Massachusetts, and there are five more events scheduled before the official end of Summer.
Both events will be held at TechSandBox located at 105B South Street in Hopkinton.
