Google Hosts Diversity-Focused Mass Innovation Nights

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2016) -  Mass Innovation Nights is collaborating with Google for the second time to host a startup showcase event on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. The 86th monthly event will be held at Google's offices in Cambridge (355 Main Street). Mass Innovation Nights are free monthly product showcase and networking events in the greater Boston area. To attend, please RSVP.

Mass Innovation Nights 86 (#MIN86) is called "Innovation for Everyone". Participating startups will be either founded by an entrepreneur representing a minority or are aimed at solving a problem dealing with issues of diversity.

"Exhibiting at Google is a great opportunity for the startups we represent," said Bobbie Carlton, Innovation Nights founder. "This kind of event is great exposure and draws an excited and engaged audience."

"It is no secret that the tech industry suffers from a lack of diversity," said Liz Schwab, public affairs manager at Google. "Events like these helps build visibility for entrepreneurs and provide examples of innovative ideas addressing diversity issues."

The event is free to attend, but attendees are encouraged to support local entrepreneurs by helping spread the word about the new products they see, by posting a blog, sending out a Tweet, or a sharing a post on Facebook. A single event can generate hundreds of social media posts.

Participating startups this month are:

CAKE
Forever Ink Project
History UnErased
Jerez Electronics
Pink Truck Designs
PIVOT
tripBuddy
Veera
VeraCloud
Xpert Eye
