TiE-Boston is has relocated its office to 101 Main Street, Kendall Square in Cambridge, Mass. The new location brings the TiE-Boston organization to the heart of entrepreneurial activity in the Boston/Cambridge area, the group said.
"We are excited about this move. TiE's mission is to accelerate start up activity on the east coast. A challenging environment is the best time to create startups that form a rising tide for our economy. Our vision as we move to Cambridge is to leverage TiE's team of experienced entrepreneurs and industry leading advisors to expand and accelerate the community of start ups," said Prat Moghe, president of TiE-Boston.
TiE-Boston pointed to a recent article in The Boston Globe that discussed the various efforts to build out more space in Kendall Square for labs, office, retail and housing and suggested that the wide variety of growing companies from biotech, clean tech to software that have located their offices in Kendall Square has made the area a premier hub of startup activity.
"By moving closer to this activity, we are better able to serve our own members and be another resource for the next generation of entrepreneurs in the area," said Vanita Shastri, executive director of TiE Boston.
