Social Impact

Greater Boston is where you surround yourself with the best and brightest in defining progress in our time. Simply put, we believe our home - the Athens of America - is a global city because our trademark export has been the breakthrough solutions to the problems too often described as intractable and overwhelming. It is our goal to ensure this tradition continues and where everyone is equipped with the resources to contribute - small or big - to the bold ideas necessary to solve the social issues we deem frustratingly inexcusable in modern society.

Civic Innovation

As one of the first cities, Boston has been creating solutions to civic challenges for over 300 years. It’s in our blood and right at the heart of who we are as a city. Today, we’re retaining our reputation as the torchbearer of civic innovation thanks to the concentration of world-class academic institutions, the original New Urban Mechanics, and the epicenter of technology that we cultivated. At StartHub, Boston comes together to bear witness to those working to improve equity, increase transparency of government, and use data for forward-thinking policy.
