TechGround Live is taking a virtual tour of Boston and people are invited to participate. I am really looking forward to it!
Boston is home to a thriving ecosystem of cybersecurity companies. Founders should consider Boston as the perfect place to start their business, thanks to the local community of like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses.
Greg Dracon has a long history of investing in the cybersecurity industry, and his experience with .406 Ventures will help them invest in companies that are looking to improve cyber security. He also serves on the board of directors for the Advanced Cyber Security Center, which is an organization that helps businesses protect themselves from cyber crime.
At Cisco, Matt oversaw the company’s Boston Innovation Team, which helps to incubate new technologies and ideas with the goal of bringing them to market. Through his work on MassChallenge’s Boston program, he has had the opportunity to work with a number of startup companies that are leading the way in technology innovation. Oort is one such company; its mission is to help users share documents securely and efficiently across devices.

The MassChallenge Conference in Boston is a great opportunity to network with like-minded entrepreneurs, and the city has many resources available to help startup founders. Legendary roboticist Marc Raibert spoke to TechGround’s Hardware Editor Brian Heater about his latest venture, leading the Hyundai AI Institute, which will provide training and support for businesses using artificial intelligence. The event ended with a pitch-off between three Boston-area startups, and it was clear that there is plenty of innovation going on in this city.
