AwesomeBoston.org is the destination for success stories in Greater Boston.
Whether it is startups with huge ideas, large companies grown from humble roots, nonprofits making society thrive, thought leaders in academia, or government officials and investors connecting people to vital resources, each of these key pieces of the Boston ecosystem should be better known to each other and to the public.
Born out of ideas discussed at the Urban Excellence unConference in February 2012, AwesomeBoston.org was created by a group of dedicated business, academic, government and non-profit leaders committed to improving Massachusetts, the Mass Action unCommittee.
The purpose of AwesomeBoston.org is twofold:
1. In an effort to better define Boston’s “story,” the site provides a platform where Boston-area business success stories are told and promoted.
2. AwesomeBoston.org serves as a portal for college and university student groups to gain access to successful Boston-based leaders who have volunteered to speak at on-campus events in an effort to further share and promote the success that can be had by launching and growing a business in Massachusetts.
AwesomeBoston.org makes sure these success stories reach a broader audience so that they can inspire more people to choose Boston for its unparalleled access to opportunity.
