Bluefin Technology Partners attended Worcester Chamber of Commerce’s Game Changers event October 20th. During the day long event, many local business’ showcased their products and services. We had the pleasure of listening to Congressman James McGovern and Anthony Consigli of Consigli Construction discuss the climate of politics and construction in the region. Mechanics hall was filled with entrepreneurs and business people, excited about how far Worcester has come and where it is going. Thanks to the hard work of local business’, officials and the Chamber of Commerce, downtown Worcester is thriving!
Our very own Jay Cahill, Co-founder and Partner of Bluefin, participated in one of the days many insightful panels. He spoke to an involved crowd about recruiting and retaining talent from the cities’ many local colleges. Jay was joined by Ben Pleat of Doorbell, David Crouch of Ten24, and Jessica Walsh of Worcester Wares on the panel. The panel agreed that the growth of the downtown area has helped develop their companies and attract talent. Worcester has talented students leaving many of the area colleges, it appears Worcester’s revitalization helps to keep them in the area.
Bluefin has been lucky enough to work out of the Worcester Idea Labs, run by Action! Worcester, for the past 3 years. The space has been not only beautiful, but great for collaborating with other businesses. We partnered with Blustream, a connected humidity tracking company, who we worked with to help build their mobile application. Worcester innovation has been picking up steam; it was great to see it on full display at Game Changers!
