Buidl Boston Executive Forum Look-Back Reflections

Last week, the BBA hosted the Buidl Boston Executive Forum. Amazingly, we’re having an impact at the highest levels. Most notably, the Executive Director of Mass Tech Collaborative and the Executive Vice President of the Boston Fed were in attendance and were both extremely complementary of the Forum. Due to the nature of the event as a pilot, the attendees were selected from Industry, Government, and Academia, with a wide distribution of blockchain acumen, from curious to confident. Table facilitators from across the BBA community curated the table discussions. And several area students volunteered to document the discussion.

Kudo’s to BBA Vice Chair Sam Nathans. High marks for the educational content. It blew everyone away and was just what the doctor ordered for this group.

Kudo’s to Mimi Almeida BBA Special Events Producer, once again, for a perfect delivery of a special event – in spite of stormy weather and an unknown private venue. Can’t say enough.
