You’ll find NO panels, NO keynotes, NO advertising pitches. This isn’t a place to practice being a social media windbag, a guru, or a hand waving advocate. Its where this year over 1,000 CEO’s, PR hacks, investors, law firms, start-up managers and students asked and answered each others questions, and networked as friendly smart people do.
My favorite entrepreneurial event of the year is the MassTLC Innovation Unconference. Mostly because I have no part in organizing it... the energy is amazing... and it attracts basically everyone in Boston who is working on an interesting new venture. So I get enough story ideas to last me a couple months.
The MassTLC Unconference is a chance for entrepreneurs to meet one-on-one with mentors or hear sessions led by their peers, all in a format that's largely unplanned and dynamic. The "law of two feet" is the law of the land--if you don't like something or think you could be getting more value elsewhere, just get up and leave.
