"Boston is one of the fastest growing tech markets in the nation, so it was a natural fit as the next community in the Built In network," CEO Maria Christopoulos Katris said. "With a robust entrepreneurial system, top university talent and an amazing city where people want to both live and work, we're excited to serve as the hub for startups and tech."
From 2012 to 2014, Boston experienced 15.7 percent growth in high-tech jobs, while more than $1 billion in investment came pouring into the tech community during the same period. The city, which boasts several startup unicorns, is known for its superior software companies and has become a major player in fintech, fashion tech, adtech and healthtech, among other spaces.
With more than 100,000 registered users (membership is free), Built In has successfully launched online communities in Austin, Chicago, Colorado, LA and New York.
