On June 15th we will be celebrating our 5th year of putting on Boston’s biggest “block party for innovation.” We can’t wait for thousands of members of the community to descend on City Hall Plaza once again. With 100+ exhibitors, 7000+ attendees, live music, and the best food trucks in Boston, TechJam is the block party of the summer!

We couldn’t make TechJam happen without our terrific underwriters, so take a moment to learn more about them.
