Thank You for Joining the Brainstorm!

Since its inception, IDEAS UMass Boston has offered an opportunity for diverse thought leaders to forge new networks and provided the fertile ground so important to fostering innovation. The annual event has also enabled our valued audience and sponsors to take part in the brainstorms happening at UMass Boston and throughout New England.

As the city's public research university, UMass Boston is proud to have provided a platform for boundary-pushing ideas.

After hosting six successful conferences, highlighting dozens of talented innovators, IDEAS UMass Boston will be taking a hiatus. We look forward to remaining engaged in the vital conversations IDEAS has sparked over the years, and seeking new ways to bring the region's great innovators together.

The IDEAS site will remain the repository for videos of the speaker presentations, allowing the community to “join the brainstorm” at any time.

Thank you to our presenters, event attendees, sponsors, and collaborators for your dedication and support.
