Entrepreneurs Networking During an event in Boston

Boston is home to one of the most progressive entrepreneurial communities in the U.S., which is largely due to the abundance of funding and human capital available here. But Boston’s small-business-friendly culture can also be attributed to the willingness of Beantown’s existing entrepreneurs to mentor and support its up-and-comers.

If you’re a small business owner in Boston, or interested in starting your own business, you should definitely check out these events for Boston’s entrepreneurs.
