Rock Weekly: We’ve got big news…

August 27th, 2012

…but we can’t tell you until tomorrow! In the meantime, chew on this:

There was over $100M in venture funding announced last week, and seven newly minted health startups graduated Friday at Rock Boston Demo Day to a standing-room audience. We could not be more proud and excited for these seven exceptional teams.  And did you hear? We just started accepting applications for startups to join our fourth class.   Join the movement and #buildsomethinguseful.
