Mobile Monday + Mobile Startup Showcase = A Very Techy Night

A few weeks ago, I attended and lived tweeted at Mobile Monday Boston’s Event that coincided with Mobile Startup Showcase. The event was held at the MIT Museum, a smaller yet ‘geek-tastic’ science & tech museum, which showcased many products developed by MIT Alumni, a great collection of Polaroid Cameras and quite the Holography exhibit. Needless to say, this was a great location not only to have a Mobile Monday event, but to also show new startup companies and their products.

After a lot of walking and a lot of talking, I was able to chat with just about every company that was in attendance to discuss more about what their companies offer. I broke down this list below between Mobile Monday’s Sponsors & Mobile Startup Showcases Exhibitors.
