A new platform has launched and is supporting Boston startup jobs.
StartHub is a comprehensive, centralized, online platform designed to connect, support, and grow Greater Boston’s world-class technology and early-stage community. Developed in a public-private partnership between the City of Boston, Venture Café, IBM, and Gust, StartHub will serve as the homepage for Greater Boston’s startup community, providing information and resources that will help connect the people of Boston to all the opportunities in the region’s ecosystem.
StartHub is built to support and grow Greater Boston’s burgeoning innovation economy into a world-class leader. Visitors to StartHub will have simultaneous access to a curated stream of Boston-based startup companies and early-stage investors; information on career opportunities and educational courses; the universal calendar for tech and startup community events; the complete guide to co-working and incubator spaces; news about the Boston digital and startup community; and additional features, all in one accessible, centralized location.
StartHub is designed to spur economic growth by connecting potential business partners and fostering a thriving startup community.
“StartHub is an embodiment of how the public and private sectors can align to support and drive innovation by building the infrastructure for a world-class startup ecosystem,” said David S. Rose, CEO of Gust. “The City of Boston and Venture Café’s commitment to the early-stage community with this new online platform will yield an unparalleled resource for all players of the tech ecosystem. Every entrepreneur, innovator, and curious mind in the Greater Boston region will now have the tools and resources they need to participate in their city’s burgeoning economy.”
