Recently I came across a new resource for emerging companies in the Waltham, MA: The Emerging Enterprise Center.
Created by Foley Hoag, LLC, a prominent local law firm, and headed
by David Broadwin, Partner and member of the firm’s Executive
Committee, the center opened for business earlier this year in
September, is located in the heart of the Route 128 corridor and aims
to provide emerging company entrepreneurs with many of the resources
they need to help launch their fledgling companies. Foley Hoag is very
active in the start-up community there and has 240 attorneys between
their Boston, Waltham and Washington DC offices.
The center has an ambitious agenda: in addition to providing a full
complement of legal services as you’d expect from a law firm, the EEC
hosts networking events between entrepreneurs, VCs, angels and other
venture & technology industry participants. There is already a
significant schedule of thought-provoking technology-oriented seminars
with well-known speakers, and various resources for entrepreneurs to
use to assist them in accelerating their start-up companies.
