MassTLC member, Liberty Mutual Insurance, is an underwriting sponsor of this year’s Boston TechJam (BTJ). We asked the Liberty Mutual team to talk about what makes Boston special and why they’re lending their support to BTJ.
Boston is our Hometown
We’ve been in business since 1912, and headquartered in Boston ever since. Boston is our hometown and where our company has grown and thrived for the last 100+ years.
Boston is home to other Fortune 100 companies, entrepreneurs, emerging and leading tech companies, academic institutions, venture capitalists, incubators, and an eco-system of top tech talent, making Boston a strong community to support, launch and scale innovative ideas of all shapes and sizes.
Why We’re Sponsoring BTJ
This is our first year sponsoring BTJ. A group of Liberty Mutual employees attended last year, and we knew we wanted to come back this year in a bigger way.
BTJ is the connector, bringing together likeminded people, technologies, companies, start-ups, innovators, creators and incubators to foster a strong tech community. Events like BTJ are so vital to connecting, nurturing and growing the local tech community. We’re proud to be a part of BTJ this year, and part of the local Boston community for over 100 years.
We’re looking forward to representing Liberty Mutual and showing that we’re a forward-thinking employer who has 5,000+ tech employees. Most people don’t think of an insurance company when they’re looking for their next role, or when they think of emerging tech. But, we’re driving a digital disruption to redefine how people experience insurance. We’re excited to be at BTJ this year to connect with industry experts, change perception of Liberty Mutual and have some fun with our Escape Unit.
Visit our Escape Room on Wheels
This year, we’re really excited to bring our tech-inspired mobile escape unit, called “Rise of SALI” to BTJ. The Escape Unit (an escape room on wheels), is an interactive gaming experience where BTJ attendees will have the chance to find hidden clues and solve puzzles to “restore and reboot” an artificially intelligent character named SALI before we lose all of her valuable data.
We want to change public perception of Liberty Mutual, and the Escape Unit is our way of using Liberty Mutual’s passion for future-thinking and emerging tech to create an incredible experience for participants and grab the attention of the local tech community. And we hope it’s an experience that shows people a side of Liberty Mutual that they might not expect.
