ENET and our cruise partners look forward to the continuation of our annual year-end networking tradition with this year’s “EntrepreneurSHIP 2023” Boston Sunset Cruise. Our last cruise in July 2022 sold out. With pent-up demand, we expect a sell-out to occur again this year. Please book early to not get left behind. We are looking forward to another great event cruising the Boston Harbor!

IEEE Boston Entrepreneurs’ Network will hold its 19th annual Sunset Cruise & Networking Evening on Boston Harbor aboard the M/V Music City Queen, on Thursday, July 13, 2023. We board the boat at 6:45 p.m., and cruise from 7:15-9:30 p.m., with additional networking on the boat dockside until 9:45 pm. The event includes a light dinner catered again this year by the well-respected Off the Vine Catering, who received many compliments for the food the last several years. There will also be a cash bar.

Our ENET Sunset Cruise on Boston Harbor will be an enjoyable, casual wrap-up for the ENET 2022-23 season, our 32nd year. We again expect over 150 attendees and guests. To enhance the networking opportunities, we have invited all ENET speakers whose presentations you enjoyed during the past year’s sessions. We will also be joined by members and guests of several other Massachusetts technology-based entrepreneurial groups, who are partnering with ENET for this “EntrepreneurSHIP 2023.”

We will be cruising on the Mass Bay Lines’ M/V Music City Queen, an ornamental 19th century sternwheeler named for city on Cumberland River (Nashville): perfect for our year-end gala. Two decks are climate controlled for year-round comfort. The MV/Music City Queen is berthed at Rowes Wharf, behind the Boston Harbor Hotel on Atlantic Avenue in Boston. Parking is available for $10 at International Place garage across the street from Rowes Wharf and there are two “T” stops nearby.

We will also be joined by members and guests of several other Massachusetts technology-based entrepreneurial groups, who are partnering with ENET for this “EntrepreneurSHIP 2023” including Women in Bio – BostonMassBio and Cambridge Innovation Center, Cambridge.

ENET is grateful to both of those vendors for their flexibility. Should such a cancellation occur, all funds received would be refunded.
