While many people may think of San Francisco or New York as startup hotspots, Boston continues to prove itself as a serious tech hub. With universities like Harvard and MIT, high rates of venture capital investment, and an abundance of creative and qualified people, Boston is quickly becoming an international startup destination.
On Monday morning, Mayor Menino’s funeral procession made its way through Boston. A quintuple-elected City Hall official, Boston’s mayor, and a citizen of this town, Menino prided himself on enhancing every part of the city he touched. In fact, the Boston Globe accredits him with turning Boston into “a hub of 21st century innovation.” Since BIGfish is located just outside Boston and we frequently work with local technology and innovation clients, we wanted to reflect on Tom Menino’s dedication to innovate Boston while maintaining the “at-home” and small town feel that make Boston a city to love.
