Expanding the NERD Community Team

Over the past 2 years, I’ve met thousands of great people in the Boston tech ecosystem, helped start-ups get going, attended countless events and have tried to be a great contributor to the success of the tech ecosystem.  The feedback that we’ve received has been outstanding, and I’ve got some great news for you!  We’re doubling down on our presence in Kendall Square and adding another person to the NERD community team!
Ensuring that there is a vibrant and growing technology ecosystem in Boston is a core principal of the community team at NERD (Paul, Leah, Sara and I).  The entire team has worked hard to make sure that Microsoft is supporting the Boston tech ecosystem in a way that helps to ensure that it continues to be the ultimate Tech Hub, where innovation, creativity and community are a way of life.  Our newest team member will be working with me on supporting the community, showing up at events, helping make Microsoft easy to approach and ensuring that we’re always doing what’s best for the community.

If you’ve spent more than 5 or 6 hours a week at out in the tech community consider upping that by a few more and joining us as we continue our work to ensure that Boston is a vibrant tech hub.  Feel free to grab me at an event, or give me a shout if you’re interested.   When you hear me say that I’ve got the best job in the world, I mean it – and now’s your chance to come see for yourself.
