Competitive Advantages Through Code: Building Faster, Smarter, and More Powerful Startups

  • CIC Boston 50 Milk Street, Lighthouse East, 20th fl Boston, MA, 02110 United States (map)

At some companies, tech can end up being mostly just plumbing for a business competing on positioning & marketing. But for others, superior technology can be a distinct competitive advantage. Novel software, algorithm-driven product, clever proprietary ways of collecting and processing data... for many founders and those aspiring, these are the kind of things that make a tech company worth the name.

We're bringing together experts & experienced engineering leaders from Boston's startup scene to share what they've learned about how to build these kinds of companies. Each speaker will give a 5 minute lightning talk presentation, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A.

This will be a high-impact event for founders and tech/product leaders who want to make sure they have a real competitive advantage from the technical foundations of their startup.

We'll have some additional time after the talks for more questions from the audience for our entire set of speakers—a great opportunity to get multiple perspectives on how you're approaching your product's tech.

This event is part of the Building Products track at Startup Boston 2018.
