Can you believe it’s almost July, Boston? We can’t either. But before you run away to the Cape, Nantucket or [insert beach locale here], try to make it out to one of these tech events this week. Get out there and network before you kick back and close your laptop.
Drinks on Tap – Head over to Ned Devine’s this evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. to scope out a handful of startups, born right here in Boston. Get your Fourth celebrations started early by sipping a drink while listening to the demos of Little World Interactive, a children’s edtech app, and OpenBay, a comparison source for automotive repair and services. The event is sponsored by local development shop Raiz Labs.
Sam Adams Boston Brewery Celebrates #SMDay – Today marks Mashable’s fifth Social Media Day, designed to “recognize the digital revolution happening right before our eyes.” The local brewmakers Sam Adams are graciously hosting the hoards of techies and social media mavens from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at their location at 30 Germania Street in Boston.
Harvard Innovation Lab: How to be a Founder Worth Coding For – When you don’t have the technical chops, putting an idea into action can be tough. But how does one attract a solid co-founder with such skills? Crowdly CEO Dan Sullivan is the startup’s sole non-technical founder. On Tuesday, he’ll share what you can do to start working with developers when you can’t afford to hire them.
General Assembly: Building Your Company Relationships – The big secret to bringing in business is getting your customers to do it for you, according to GA. Attend this workshop, and you’ll learn how to build the best marketing channels and brand advocacy programs into your company.
VistaPrint Tech Trivia Night – Sure, your development team can program. But can they own at trivia? Stop by Johnnie D’s in Somerville to find out. Doors open at 6 p.m. and trivia kicks off at 7 p.m. To make the pot even sweeter, VistaPrint is giving away a whopping $1,000 to the top team! But in the end, everyone’s a winner. Each crew will also receive a $100 voucher for food and drinks.
Launchpad on Demand – Talk strategy, seed funding and more at this hour-long, digital roundtable mentoring session on Thursday. Attendance is limited to maintain a three-to-three investor to entrepreneur ratio, so sign up soon.
Happy Fourth of July!
