Laissez les bons temps rouler: NEVY Awards 2017

May 24, 2017 Angela Smith

On May 17, a sparkly InkHouse crew attended the fifth annual NEVY Awards - a dazzling night put on by the New England Venture Capital Association recognizing the people building the next generation of innovative companies. Adorned with masks and beads, the House of Blues transformed into Boston’s own Bourbon Street for an evening of partying (and of course, networking!) with the city’s most notable entrepreneurs and VCs.

They do this by fostering relationships between founders and investors, amplifying the voice of the state’s entrepreneurial community, connecting top students with growing startups, and advocating for innovation-friendly public policy.
