The Innovation Open House series has one simple goal: the connect Boston's smartest students with Boston's coolest companies.
Getting into an IOH gives you an all-access pass to visit some of the most innovative companies in this part of the world ... meet the CEO or a founder (and maybe even a recent graduate hired from your school) ... ask any question you want ... get a tour ... and see some demos of breakthroughs the company is currently working on.
It's totally free (and there will be snacks). It's a casual visit, not a high-pressure interview situation. There's no ulterior motive, aside from making it easier for the most motivated students at Boston-area schools to plug in to the innovation scene here. It doesn't necessarily need to be connected to any course you're currently taking (though if you can finagle some credit or turn this into a project, good for you.)
You can register for one of our spring 2014 open houses at right (if you are a currently-enrolled student.)
The best way to keep up-to-date with the Innovation Open Houses series, whether you're a student planning to participate or a company interested in hosting one, is by joining our Facebook group. There, you'll find the answers to any questions you might have...like how you can nab a spot at one or more IOHs.
Past participants in the program have included Google Cambridge, HubSpot, Zipcar, Rethink Robotics, Gazelle, Rue La La, IDEO, Karmaloop, Nuance, Terrafugia, Blue State Digital, SCVNGR/LevelUp, Gemvara, and Greentown Labs.
