Boston has long been a gateway city welcoming innovators from all over the world. Today, Massachusetts has strong connections to tech hubs around the world. One great example of this is home-grown MassChallenge that boasts global partners and just opened up two international locations.

There is so much untapped potential abroad that can drive economic growth. This FWDMonthly hear from Jibran Malek and Kara Shurmantine about how MassChallenge is connecting Boston with tech hubs abroad and building a global innovation community. Then work in our project groups on the next wave of advocacy that will make sure our immigration system doesn’t close out international talent.
