JLabs The Secret Science of Storytelling


Humans have been telling stories for millennia, yet ask a scientist to explain what they do and the answer is often hard to understand. As a consequence, not only does the public know less and less about exciting research projects, but investors, media and patients are also often in the dark. This inability to describe what they do often hinders healthcare startups from raising funds, attracting media attention and connecting with future customers.

But it doesn't have to be so difficult. All stories follow certain hidden structures, and discovering these structures can help orient executives, scientists and researchers toward shaping their story in a compelling way. In addition, knowing how to properly place your story in context and how to relate it to different audiences will ensure you and your story – whether in the form of an investor presentation, networking talk or recruiting pitch – will be remembered.

Using examples from journalism, big data analytics and the real world, Ryan Flinn, a communications leader at Johnson & Johnson Innovation, will share the lessons he's learned from nearly two decades as a storyteller, both as a journalist at Bloomberg News and as a media strategist.

Marketing for People Who Don't Like Marketing

For consultative professionals in charge of their own marketing. Realtors, financial advisors, coaches of all varieties in the first 2-5 years of business. This is not for corporate.

Do you avoid your marketing? You are not alone. However, your business will fizzle out and disappear unless you embrace this. The good news is, you don’t have to do it like everyone else. In fact, that’s what got you in trouble in the first place.

Instead, what if your marketing were a natural extension of who you truly are? What if it felt simple and authentic to do? And what if your marketing created deep trust and respect, right from the get-go?

In this talk, I share 3 Keys to Loving Your Marketing that will get you thinking differently about your entire approach to outreach. From case studies of successful professionals to a chance meeting with your secret Innate Marketing Genius (turns out, we all have one!) and perhaps a laugh or two, we’ll cover all of this and more. Nope, this isn’t your typical marketing chat! What’s for sure is you will walk away knowing your particular genius type and how it will simplify your marketing right away.

Top 3 Mistakes Solopreneurs Make -- and How You Can Avoid Them

  • Google Calendar ICS

Top 3 Biggest Mistakes Solopreneurs Make
...and How You Can Avoid Them

Do you ever feel like there must be an easier way to grow your business?

Does it ever feel ‘too hard’ and like you just must be missing some obvious secret to success?

Do you wish you knew some of the tips, tricks and hacks that would help you get more clients, get more visibility, and make more money?

The truth is, many solopreneurs are leaving money on the table because they’ve been misinformed about how business works, what’s possible for a solo business owner, and how much they can earn.

In this session, we’ll debunk some of the biggest myths about business, and learn how to avoid some of the biggest mistakes solo business owners make at every stage of growth.

You should attend this session if you:

  • Feel like you’re busy all the time, but still not earning enough money

  • Aren’t sure where to find new clients, or keep the ones you’ve got

  • Have ever heard yourself saying ‘People just don’t have the budget for that.’

Women of Wearables Boston - December Event!

Come to the Women of Wearables (WoW) Boston Chapter December event, in partnership with CIC (Cambridge Innovation Center). CIC has been a home for entrepreneurs all around the world, and we're having this month's event at its flagship location in Cambridge.

The WoW Boston Chapter aims to locally reflect the global WoW organization, highlighting women in the region working in wearable tech. This month, we’ll hear from Jocelyn Scheirer, an entrepreneur, scientist, and artist who has been working in wearable biometrics since the late 1990s. Her research focuses on emotion, which she began during her PhD studies at the nascent MIT Media Lab’s Affective Computing Group founded by Rosalind Picard. Scheirer invented and, along with MIT, patented a very early textile biosensor which measured skin conductance and eventually led to several wearable products currently on the market. She founded and co-founded several wearables companies including Empathyx, Inc. Affectiva, and Bionolux Labs. She has held research and faculty posts at Harvard and Brandeis Universities. In recent years, she has also consulted for industry, government and academia on numerous projects involving sensors, physiology, and VR/AR. Her clients include NASA, Brandeis University, NYU, and industry. She has served on the board of the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York and is a frequent speaker on topics relevant to technology entrepreneurship, sensors, and scholarship.

Read more about Jocelyn here!

We'll network and learn about Jocelyn and her journey in wearable tech!

Please RSVP to put your name on the guest list. CIC Cambridge has lobby security, so we’ll need to know to let you in by having you register.

Launch Clinic: eCommerce Startups

At the eCommerce Themed Launch Clinic,  3 startups present a 15-minute pitch for feedback from our panel of experts + the audience.

Launch Clinics are a great place for startups to get constructive feedback on their pitch from a board-of-directors-level panel of experts and thoughtful audience members. The focus on early-stage ventures encourages a sympathetic and supportive atmosphere. Audience and panel feedback often helps presenters understand their problems and offers useful tips and solutions.

Even if you’re not quite ready to present, we encourage entrepreneurs to attend the clinics to see what our panel of experts (investors and others) are looking for in a pitch, what kind of questions they ask and their suggestions for refining the business plan.

Brown Bag / Yasuhiro Yamauchi: How Japan Sends Off the Year and Welcomes the Next

In Japan, this is a season for reflection and hopeful envisioning of the year to come. It is a symbolic bridge. At the moment of crossing into the new year, temple bells in Japan are rung 108 times representing the 107 worldly desires plus once to symbolize forgetting about the previous year's worries. 

Many end of year customs in Japan have deep roots in Buddhism and Shintoism. Take this chance to learn about the cultural - and also spiritual - significance of end of year traditions for Japanese.

UX Research Ethics

  • CIC Cambridge, Cloud City, 14th floor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We're excited to continue our best practices series started last month and to work with Ethical Technology Boston for this event.

About This Event:

Empathy. Deep Empathy. Accessibility. Inclusiveness. Localization. As the tech industry matures, more and more organizations are acknowledging how the users of their products often differ from those creating them. To close this gap and design better experiences, product teams have begun incorporating more user research into their development cycles.

Including users in the design process presents several ethical challenges, however. For example, how do we test important business assumptions while ensuring participant well-being and privacy? How do we balance user feedback with subject matter expertise? Using examples from the speaker’s work, this talk explores the sometimes thin line between “human-centric” and unethical.

About Our Speaker:

Alba N. Villamil is an independent UX Researcher who specializes in designing products for vulnerable populations like refugees and low-income families. In addition to working with pre-stage startups, she has worked on projects with Code for America, the Harvard Kennedy School, and the Rochester City School District. She studied sociology at Harvard University and social psychology at Swarthmore College.

About Ethical Technology Boston:

Ethical Technology Boston is a community of technology & design professionals looking to incorporate ethics and social responsibility into our daily work. We meet locally and online to discuss real-life ethical issues and potential implications for our industries. We aim to learn from each other, develop new practices for design and technology development, and build a trusted support network. We’re part of a global online community, Ethical Technology/Ethical Design, at ethicsofdesign.org.

6:00 – 6:30 PM: Networking
