  • Mission/ Theme – Driving Innovation and fostering entrepreneurshipOur Members Technology Companies – that are developing exciting and innovative applications, systems, tools and technologies –most of you as MassNetComms members will fit in to this categoryCorporate IT Departments- from energy, financial services, healthcare, life sciences and other technology enabled organizationsProfessional Services Firms – that contribute expertise and thought leadership supporting the technology industry’s growth (VC’s, Law firms, Accounting etc.)
  • Review one sentence about each of us and what we do. A number of the MNCC Trustees will be joining the MassTLC Board and will be announced at the Annual Meeting in February 2010
  • On a high level, the Council does three things…Business Development – benefits the company, Economic Development – benefits the region, and Professional Development – benefits the person.Business development, in the form of networking, learning and exposure opportunities with potential partners, customers and vendors comes primarily through our Cluster Communities, Major Events, and other Committees.Economic Development in the form of regional promotion, workforce development, advocacy, and research come through our Education Foundation, Research Grants, Clusters, and other initiatives like the STEM-Tech Alliance and the IT Study Group. Professional development in the form of networking, advisory board participation, and speaking opportunities come through participation in Clusters, Major Programs, and other Committees.
  • I’ll be taking a deeper dive into the categories listed here, but briefly, the Combined Council hosts over 15 Clusters/ Communities of interest in three different groupings: Technology, Industry, and Peer-to-Peer. Clusters are for members-only and drive content for our public programmingThe Council also serves members – and the broader community – by hosting popular and timely Major Events that create, visibility, energy and momentum for the industry and provide high level networking and knowledge sharing opportunities.Policy/ Workforce – The Council is committed to working with members, local, state and national officials on issues that impact their company’s success, and on continuing to foster a world renowned workforce that continues to spawn innovation in the state.
  • So let me start with the Clusters – Great way to leverage value…Clusters are designed to address vital issues impacting a specific area of interest, explore opportunities, and examine emerging technologies…Through the clusters, member executives share insights, exchange information on topics of mutual interest, and explore new opportunities for business growth, both within a cluster and at the intersection points between clusters. TRANS – Here are the clusters…
  • Here is a list of our 2010 Clusters. They are groupedby: technology, industry, and peer-to-peer sections, and driven by member-only Advisory Boards consisting of content experts in the field.As you can see, the Council has added a Mobile Cluster and will be expanding our existing Cloud Cluster. We are also committed to programming in video and broadband and are determining with MassNetComms leadership if they will be stand alone clusters, a program series, or integrated into one or more existing clusters. We appreciate your feedback as ultimately it will be driven by you, the members.We invite you, and or the appropriate executives from your organization, to get involved with a cluster that fits your area of expertise. You can sign up to be added to the distribution lists by dropping your card off with Christine in the back. Mark and other MNCC leadership will also be working closely on these clusters to ensure a smooth transition.
