WHAT WE DO

THE EDDIES
(previously New England Innovation Awards)

The 1986 "Evening of Innovation"  is now an

8-month-long innovation program designed to support the individual needs of its cohort.

RELATIONSHIP-BUILDING & CONNECTING

We help our teams and alumni cultivate mutually beneficial relationships, by offerings a platform for cooperation and referrals. We connect ground-breaking thought to the resources it needs to prosper and flourish.

COACHING & MENTORING

Finalists are offered a 15-week one-to-one immersive, complimentary coaching, to help them craft and convey their unique and impactful message, and develop the soft business skills required for success.

The individualized approach is supplemented by Mentoring Modules that address common entrepreneurial challenges.

Following the end of the competition we continue to support our teams until they no longer need our guidance and services.

PUBLICITY & AWARENESS BUILDING

We are thrilled to be publicizing and sharing our Innovators' achievements through our website and social media platforms.  We are firm believers that innovation is better when shared!

Our collaboration with Podcast Entrepreneurs offers our cohort the opportunity to talk about their breakthroughs to an audience of nearly

1 million people. 

TV Programs like CBS This Morning, WCVB's The Cutting Edge and Made in Mass have highlighted several of our winners, after our sharing their inspirational stories with them.
