June 2009 is New England Innovation Month

There are so many reasons to live and work in New England. One thing that’s kept me here is our region’s commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship.

Where else in the world combines New England’s ecosphere of startups, capital, resources and talent, plus our unique quality of life: 4 seasons, lobsters, colleges, culcha and the Red Sox!

I had a chance to live in an Eichler in Silly Valley—no thanks!

A reminder to all that June 2009 is New England Innovation Month in which a slew ofawesome events are taking place. Check out what’s upcoming and what’s happened already at

While Innovation Month is a collaborative mashup--- the lion’s share of the idea and the hard work goes to “Mr. Innovation” himself Scott Kirsner as well as New England’s Future-Forward looking leading ladies in entrepreneurial events: Shayne Gilbert and Alyssa Stern--- producers of the spectacular Nantucket Conference and Convergence gatherings.
