TechProm – Video World Premiere

by Holland-Mark | September 26, 2011

I caught a great presentation by Sean Lindsay last week, and it really hammered home for me how the Boston startup and digital marketing community is coming into its own.

Social events have and will continue to play an important role in knitting us all together, which is why I’d like to take a moment to invite you personally┬áto the upcoming TechProm on Thursday, October 20.

Dave Balter’s TechProm is the brainchild of a few of the more interesting characters in the Boston startup ecosystem, including spiritual father and serial entrepreneur Dave Balter, serial diva and Runkeeper Director of Marketing Sarah Hodges, startup vet and Apricot Capital angel Jennifer Lum, DART Boston evangelist and aspiring lothario Cort Johnson, and your truly.

The backstory is pretty straightforward… We were talking one night about how a lot of the cool kids on the scene were probably somewhat less than that back in high school, and somebody hit on the idea that it sure would be fun to have another shot at Prom. Dave agreed to support and lend his name to the gig, and the rest is pretty much history.

There’ll be hors d’oeuvres, dancing, and an open bar from 8:30-1:30 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, along with a whole bunch of goodies and surprises we’ve lined up for all attendees. Tickets start at an accessible $20, thanks to sponsors including Wayfair, BULLHORN, GSN, BzzAgent, Boston Seed Capital, Holland-Mark and Carbonite. The theme is “Sunglasses at Night,” and you should come in your ’80s Prom best, stag or with a date.

The World Premier of our new promo video appears below… enjoy it, share it with the digerati you want to hang with, and we’ll see you on Thursday, October 20.
