MassEcon, the state’s private sector partner in promoting Massachusetts as the premier choice for business growth, is seeking nominations for the best new companies to set up shop in Massachusetts since January 1, 2013.
These companies will be invited to attend the sixth annual MassEcon Corporate Welcome Reception, taking place on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at Genzyme headquarters in Kendall Square, Cambridge. The gathering includes 100 private sector leaders and senior state officials, including Gregory Bialecki, Secretary of the Executive Office of Housing & Economic Development.
Last year’s event welcomed seventeen companies new to Massachusetts, including both start-up companies and established businesses, originating from across the United States and around the world. Here is a list of the 2013 companies with profiles.
Susan Houston, Executive Director of MassEcon, says the corporate welcome reception is a great way for new companies to meet their colleagues, competitors and potential collaborators in a relaxed, informal setting.
“MassEcon and its Ambassadors want to say ‘thank you’ to these companies for locating in Massachusetts,” says Houston. “Connecting their executives with contacts from the state, academia, and other industries tells these companies that there is a community ready to support their growth.”
Here is the MassEcon Nomination Form. The eligible companies must have established a new physical presence in Massachusetts since January 1, 2013. Deadline for submission is Tuesday, March 4, 2014.
