Roundtable: Building a Better Boston

Tech In Boston #43: Interview with Mark Lorion, Sarah Sherburne, John Landry and Brian Dacey.

At the end of every episode of Tech In Boston, I ask each guest “what’s something that we could be doing better here in the Boston startup community?”

Without fail, they give one of three answers: get more women in tech, keep talent here in Boston, and find more affordable office space for startups.

This year’s theme for Boston Tech Jam is all about building a better Boston, so my friend Mark Lorion (CMO at Apperian; co-founder of Boston Tech Jam) suggested we round up a few folks and do a podcast episode dedicated to this topic.

Mark and I are joined by John Landry (serial entrepreneur and angel investor with 40+ years in Boston tech), Sarah Sherberne (NEVCA) and Brian Dacey (President of the CIC) to talk about these three issues and what we can do to make things better here in Boston.

ABOUT TECH IN BOSTON

 

Hey there, I’m DaveTech In Boston is a little side project I started in the spring of 2014.

I love hearing stories about people in the tech and startup world, how they work, what they do on a daily basis, and the things that have led to their success.  But it felt like every article that I read or interview that I listened to was about someone out on the West Coast.  That wasn’t always the case, but more often than not, it never seemed to be about someone working at a company in Boston.

I’m from the area, I love living and working here and I wanted to find a way to share the stories of the people in the community here, and that’s why I started Tech In Boston.

I’m not trying to break any news or spread any gossip.  It’s just a conversation over a coffee or a beer with someone interesting on topics like building a company, product, sales, marketing and more.  The goal is to share people’s stories and the things they’ve learned along the way in their career, all with a focus on Boston.

Tech In Boston has been a mini-MBA for me, and I’m hoping that it is for other people as well.
