startup events organized by ENET




with entrepreneurs in Technology & Life Sciences


A community for startups

Established in 1991 by tech entrepreneurs in Greater Boston, ENET is a startup community of entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and professionals in tech and life sciences. We are a non-profit affiliated with IEEE.

Our goal is to connect early stage entrepreneurs with information and resources necessary to transform an idea into a successful product or service business.

ENET events have been instrumental in the formation of many startups and provide an important venue for event participants and members to network, talk about their ideas, showcase their startups, and conduct business.

eminute pitch practice

eMinute is not another version of Shark Tank or its imitators. Founders get 90 seconds to introduce their company, talk about the problem they’re solving, the traction they’ve gotten, and what their next step is to the live audience at one of our events. Each pitch is followed by feedback and suggestions from the expert panelists at the event.
