Boston has long been a frontrunner in the tech industry, home to innovators from all over the world. In fact, a 2014 study found that Boston has the second-largest tech industry in the nation, trumped only by Silicon Valley. The survey revealed a 5.2 percent job increase in tech jobs in Silicon Valley, with Boston just behind them at 4.3 percent; that’s 145,484 jobs generated just in the tech sector! With so many technology-focused colleges in the Boston area like MIT, Northeastern, Boston University, Harvard and Tufts, it’s no wonder words like “hackathon,” “Kickstarter” and “startup” have become norms in Boston’s vocabulary. Want to know what’s coming next in the world of tech? Here are a few university-based startups to keep your eye on before they go big.

If you own a MacBook, you know one of the biggest problems faced is the dreaded, “startup disk almost full,” warning message.

When you think of Boston, you probably picture walking along the cobblestone streets of Beacon Hill, tasting the delicious Italian food of the North End or hearing the roar from Fenway Park as you stroll down Queensbury Street. This is quintessential Beantown-some of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in the city. They are what draw thousands of tourists to Boston every year, and I can almost guarantee they’re the backdrop in any Boston-based movie you’ve seen. While we Bostonians love these neighborhoods, we often forget to pay our respects to the other niche communities that contribute to this vibrant urban setting, specifically the up-and-coming NEW Waterfront.

Think Local, Buy Local: How Boston is Quickly Becoming the Most Sustainable City in the Country

by Anna Dow

Sustainability, at its simplest and most fundamental level, is defined as “a city’s or country’s ability to sustain, or its capacity to endure.” But, in a world filled with one too many harmful fertilizers and pesticides, is it too late for cities to introduce sustainable food markets and implement successful environmental policies and programs? Is it too late to endure? Many would argue that it is. But for those individuals that still have faith in the power of human innovation and the will to survive, a beacon of hope can be found in Boston, Massachusetts.
