A little bit about Mobile Monday Boston @ MIT on April 7th……… I know this is an overdue post, but we’re extremely busy setting up the incubator, so your understanding is appreciated .
On Monday April 7th, Mobile Monday Boston held its regular gathering at MIT campus. With over 400 attendees, it was a rather exciting event. The detail can be found here.
There are more than 10 booths, and about 5 of those booths belong to Nextlab’s projects. One of the booths was the Next Billion Networks (NBN) itself. We were surprised by the overwhelming level of interests expressed by the people who visited NBN’s booth. Many of them wanted to get involved with NBN in general, or contribute in specific projects. Some wanted to offer their technical skills, technology reuse, etc. Others wanted to offer specific expertise such as healthcare. They wondered if the initiative is restricted to MIT community.
The answer to the last question is no! And that is exactly why we’re here developing this incubator platform & process, tailored for mobile technology development for developing countries.
During the event, we had to inform people that for now, they have to manually email Jhonatan to get involved. One of the goals of this project is to allow such passionate individuals to have easy access to the programs that NBN is working on. So stay tuned for our incubator platform!
