I am thrilled to announce the Fall Boston 2012 class. Each session we push ourselves to get better and continue to try new things. This is the first time we have run more than one session in the same year in Boston and are delighted by the quality of startups and the enthusiasm the community has shown for a second program. Our session begins today and will end on November 14th with demo day.
Our Boston mentors and investors have great breadth and depth in technology and business so we’ve chosen a wonderfully diverse set of companies. They range from consumer mobile to health IT, small business SaaS to travel and fashion marketplaces, and more. In fact, we’ve stretched beyond software to include a materials science company and a consumer product technology.
The companies bring an astounding level of drive, knowledge, enthusiasm and stick-to-itness that I know will make great businesses. Many of the companies are from the Boston area but we also have teams from Israel, Slovenia, Colombia and Ann Arbor. If experience is a guide, I know they will all be blown away by the welcome they receive from the Boston community. This is an amazing city; we are all lucky to be here.
