Members of the Boston community gathered for a weekend full of collaboration, growth, and the infectious energy that can only be found at Startup Weekend.  Hosted by Microsoft NERD, a diverse  group of over 130 people came together to form 15 teams containing anywhere from 2 to 15 participants.  Looking back, organizer Liza Adams, had this to say: ““Startup Weekend Boston was a huge success. I was impressed with the amount of high quality ideas and the progress teams made throughout the weekend. I’m excited to see a handful of them continue on and evolve over time. Also, a huge thank you to all of our mentors and judges, as well as our sponsors Microsoft and WilmerHale. And of course to Marc for flying out and spearheading the whole weekend!”
