Web Innovators Group – New Site and Next Event Mar 20th

Given the success of our previous events, I am excited to announce that we’ve relaunched the Web Innovators Group (WebInno) website and set the details for our next gathering.

The new website is located at I’d highly recommend checking it out. (A special thanks goes to Ryan Sarver of Qiio for his help in designing and creating the site). With an updated look & feel, as well as a dedicated blog and wiki, we now have a richer set of tools for communicating about the group and our events. Rather than continually announce upcoming meetings here on the Genuine VC blog, future WebInno event information will be found on the group’s blog. Both there and on the home page, you can subscribe to updates either via e-mail or RSS feeds.

Secondly, we’ve set the details for our upcoming meeting. In order to accommodate the larger demand, as previous venues were leaving us space-constrained, we’ve moved locations to a conference room at Hotel @ MIT. The next event details:

Boston Web Innovators Group (WebInno)

Monday March 20th at 6:30pm

Taylor Room, Hotel @ MIT, Kendall Square

The event is open to all who are interested in web and mobile innovation. If you are planning to join us, I would appreciate it if you would sign our RSVP wiki page so we can give an accurate assessment of attendance.

As with previous events, the gathering will start with three company demonstrations at 7pm, followed by a few hours of schmoozing. We are currently seeking 1-3 self-funded/early-stage stage start-ups to fill these presentation slots. If you are interested, please e-mail me with a quick overview.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming meeting in a few weeks.
