Snow may be coming, but there are still some great civic tech events this week. Here are three not to miss this week at Microsoft New England:
Social Venture Partners Boston invests in Greater Boston nonprofits that are helping children, young adults, and their families thrive. We invest our monetary resources (in long-term grants) and talents (as pro-bono consultants) to support mid-level nonprofits as they hone their service models, invest in their people, stabilize their operations, and think strategically about growth.
We are currently accepting applications for our next Microsoft Ventures Accelerator in Seattle dedicated to Digital Work. This cohort will focus on startups building scalable productivity applications, cloud-centric software platforms and enterprise-grade solutions to help people get more done. Startups can apply now for the Digital Work Accelerator.
Come learn about the new Seattle class, meet local startups in the space, speak to folks from Microsoft Ventures and get all of your important questions answered. Food and beverages will be served.
EVENT UPDATE: Due to the blizzard warning, we will make the final call on this event by noon ET on Tuesday. Please stay tuned for further updates, and most importantly, stay safe!
Whether you’re a profitable business, a startup, or a leader in a community organization, you need to deliver something that your customers embrace. You may listen to what people say, but how do you derive success from what you hear?
Join Phil Terry, the co-author of Customers Included and an expert on customer experiences, on Tuesday, Jan. 27 as he shares insights on including customers at the heart of your business to build true success. Phil will discuss how to understand customers at every stage of your business, especially when setting initial strategy and running product development.
To enhance the experience for you, Scott Kirsner of The Boston Globe will lead an interactive Q&A following the talk. So bring your product, market fit and customer challenges to discuss with Phil, Scott and the audience.
This is a free community event sponsored by Nara Logics, an AI company based in Kendall Square. Nara believes that truly understanding how your customers think leads to success, and we’re excited to help share and spread the Customers Included principles within the Kendall Square community.
