Autodesk Hosts Mass Innovation Nights at New BUILD Space

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 24, 2016) - Mass Innovation Nights and Autodesk will host the 90th Mass Innovation Nights (#MIN90). The event will be held on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm at Autodesk's new BUILD Space in Boston's Seaport District. Mass Innovation Nights are free product showcase and networking events held monthly in the greater Boston area. To attend, please RSVP.

Autodesk's Building Innovation Learning and Design (BUILD) Space is focused on new technologies that are changing the building industry. The BUILD Space brings together students, entrepreneurs, and researchers to explore new ways to make design and construction more efficient. The BUILD Space's three floors include high-tech tools like laser cutters and a water jet, programmable milling machines, 3-D printers and robots.

"By partnering with leading local companies like Autodesk and hosting events in their locations, our events are a great way to explore the resources and hidden treasures of our Boston region's business community," said Innovation Nights founder Bobbie Carlton. "Longtime Innovation Nights partner, and four-time host/sponsor, Autodesk recognizes the value of connecting with local innovators."

"Mass Innovation Nights connects startups and other companies with new products with potential customers, partners and investors, and raises their visibility through the power of social media and face-to-face events like these," said Rick Rundell, senior director at Autodesk.

Several of the products featured at the event are from companies working in Autodesk's BUILD Space incubator. The event will also feature new student-founded startups from Accelerate, the Innovation Center at Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT).
