For all the buzz about coworking spaces, incubators, accelerators and whatever other buzz words you want to use when it comes to supporting young businesses, all the talk seems to have centered around Boston….until now.
Barb Finer, founder of QuiTivity, is starting a new venture slated for 2013 to bring those types of resources to Metrowest. TechSandbox’s mission will be to accelerate the success of science and technology entrepreneurs based in the 30+ cities and towns located near the 495/90/rt9 Metrowest corridor. While details will be finalized on the project in the coming weeks and months, it’s good to see that business communities west of Boston are staring to get in on the action.

The call has been put out to the Metrowest community at large. Check out the mass-connect calendar, there are several events scheduled to pull together volunteers to help nurture this project. There are 5 events scheduled through December and January, an open call for volunteers including the formation of steering committees that will work the details of programs to be offered.
If you want to get in on the action, the events will be Thursday nights on Dec 20th and Jan 10th and Friday mornings the 14th, 21st and 28th of December, all to be held at Tatnuck, 18 Lyman St., Westboro, MA. Get on board before the train leaves the station and support the emerging entrepreneurial effort in Metrowest.
