1) Vibrant Boston Business Community. There are literally thousands of businesses in the Greater Boston area, from a wide range of industries, including financial services, retail, insurance and technology. From multi-national corporations, to thousands of small businesses growing the local economy, there are networking opportunities (and clients!) for everyone.
2) The Boston Venture Capital Community. Second only to Silicon Valley in dollars invested per year, Boston is a national hub for VC firms and VC investment. As a result, Boston provides numerous networking opportunities with these investors.
3) The Boston Start-up Community. Not surprisingly, a strong venture capital community goes hand in hand with a strong start-up community. Networking with these entrepreneurs, whether veterans or new to the game, is a great way to learn, get ideas, build partners, and get clients.
4) Boston Colleges and Universities. The Greater Boston Area houses some of the top schools in the country. Not only do these schools feed the local start-up community, but also the highest reaches of Corporate America (Finance and Consulting to name two industries) and Government across the nation.
