The MITX What’s Next Awards ceremony was held this evening in Boston’s Innovation District. Hosted by funny man and “Bostonian”, John Michael Higgins the ceremony awarded industry folks in categories like non-profit and government, best integrated media campaign, and many others. MITX also honored our previous Mayor Thomas Menino for helping establish and grow the Innovation District. Menino recognized his team that drove these initiatives and thanked them for their persistence in investing in the growth of technology and innovation. Big shout out to the live music too!
