Venture Leaders 2009 ~ Our MIT Innovation Tour!
Thanks to Dania Gerhardt of Amazee for writing about my MIT Innovation Tour for the ninth class of Venture Leaders hosted in Boston by Swiss Consul Pascal Marmier of swissnex, the Swiss Venture Consulate (a new kind of VC)! You can see from Dania's photos our walk around MIT where I could spotlight the many startups and businesses created by MIT faculty and alumni -- e.g. Cambridge Innovation Center, Biogen, Genzyme, iRobot, TI, among others. We also discussed emerging innovation themes and the larger innovation ecology around the Institute, plus a few historical highlights including perfecting radar and Newton's inspiration;-) Naturally we ended up at the MIT Muddy Charles Pub!
