Tonight we were invited to speak on a HUBweek panel entitled ‘Innovation, the New Foundation of Urban Living’. Founded by The Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT, and Massachusetts General Hospital, HUBweek showcases, celebrates, and convenes the most inventive minds making an impact in Boston and around the world. The moderator was Tinchuck Ng, one of the founding advisory board members of DesignX. We were joined on the panel by a fellow MIT alum who founded Ori Systems, as well as the bizdev manager for Envoy.
