Learn more about Boston New Technology
Boston New Technology is a not-for-profit startup, technology and business community of 27k business professionals, whose mission is to help local businesses launch and grow, especially startups! BNT's network extends to Austin, Texas, with over 50k members across 14 meetup groups!
BNT is an awesome network for entrepreneurs, investors, coders, designers, business-developers, marketers, technology enthusiasts and other professionals to connect at live events, be inspired and educated, share amazing opportunities, collaborate, launch and learn about new product ventures, form partnerships and grow businesses! About 2/3 of BNT's business network are technical and 2/3 have a role with at least one startup. The 1/3 who are not part of a startup are supporters and those “aspiring” to become entrepreneurs, who come to network with startups and others in the startup and tech community.
BNT helps early-stage startups and partner companies get significant publicity and support from the community through our live events, marketing channels and partner groups. BNT helps startups engage the community to get buzz, feedback and traction for their products and services, and find co-founders, employees, partners and other support they need. We connect startups with our partner corporations and community organizations, which provide them with mentorship, exclusive opportunities & resources, and free or highly-discounted services.
In BNT's 9-year history, we have partnered with over 200 sponsor companies to produce and host/co-host 150+ free and not-for-profit events, including 111+ monthly startup showcases, with over 700 companies presenting!
See BNT's Past Meetups here. At showcases, 6-7 startups present to 150-250 members, giving a brief overview of their technology product, demonstrating it live, and answering questions from attendees. The presentations are preceded by an hour of networking and followed by another half hour of networking.
These amazing companies have been BNT's top event partners: AT&T, Autodesk, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Comcast, Constant Contact / Endurance International, Dassault Systemes, Draper, Fidelity Investments, First Republic Bank, Foley Hoag, General Assembly, IBM, Microsoft, O'Reilly Media, PTC, Salesforce, Schwab, The Boston Globe, UPS, Verizon, Wayfair and WeWork.
