BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2017) - On Monday, October 16, 2017 Mass Innovation Nights, Boston's monthly new product showcase, is kicking off the 2017 WE BOS Week with a product launch event designed to help promote Boston's newest female-founded companies.

"It's the one time of year when we specifically celebrate our female founders. But there is no waiting, we have female founders at all of our events. In fact, a recent review of our data reveals that over the last eight years, our launch events have supported a remarkably diverse set of founders, including more than 44 percent of whom are women."
