The newest feature of the 2016 Boston TechJam is the inclusion of Urban Beach. Created by the New England Venture Capital Association, Urban Beach is a program designed specifically for college students and graduates to network with other startups across Boston. Recent grads should absolutely look into attending this year for the opportunities abound with the Urban Beach program.

National companies such as Comcast and Verizon will be there, but the main focus of the TechJam is for startup companies to demonstrate what they can offer to the growing tech scene across the country.

A who’s who of local startups

This year’s Boston TechJam will have nearly 100 Boston based companies and startups promoting their products and services. Boston based companies such as Wayfair, Converse and Karmaloop, will be exhibiting themselves to the City Hall Plaza.

Each company will have their own special booth with their products. Some companies will even have live demos and games, making this a consistently interactive convention for any and all attendees.

Entertainment and food = a great combination

Along with the chance to check out and experience the newest technology, there will be live entertainment from local bands. The two featured bands, East Coast Soul and Bad Rabbits, will be providing all the TechJam goers will an eclectic soundtrack, as they test out certain products.

The event will be catering to those who are both involved with tech startup scene, but also those who just want to have a good time with all kind of latest and greatest technology.

I like honey roasted peanuts because they are delicious. I also like the Metal Slug games and X-Men comics because they are awesome.
