Multi-City Networking Event - Boston Recap

On Tuesday night, as several Women in Wireless chapters gathered around the globe, some of the top players in the Boston mobile scene came together at the Jumptap Headquarters, to get to know one another, network, and discuss the ever-changing industry.

Stunning views of Boston's seaport district were the perfect backdrop for the third annual Women in Wireless Global Networking event, which was made possible by the generous sponsorships of Jumptap and Nexage.

Laurie Cutts, the Director of Marketing for Nanigans, welcomed the crowd of over fifty attendees, and opened the floor to the sponsors. Joyce Bell from Nexage and Diana Epstein from Jumptap thanked all in attendance, and further reinforced the need for women in the digital industry to collaborate, foster leadership, and promote growth.

Finally, Melissa LaFrance took the floor to introduce the Women in Media Mentoring Initiative, which is slated to launch a Boston chapter in October. WIMMI offers a supportive and inclusive environment to women in all facets of media and all stages of their career. Melissa told the story of WIMMI, which was launched by Jack Myers in 2011, and invited attendees to their official Boston launch on October 10th

The remainder of the event was reserved for networking, as the crowd was as diverse as their companies. Attendees included the likes of NPR, WGBH, Millennial Media, Incrowd Ads, MocoSpace, Liquid Wireless, Mobext, Paypal, Nanigans, Dilligant and more. The WiW Boston team was thrilled with the turnout, and immediately began looking forward to the next Women in Wireless event!
