Pick out your events for the new year

Plus, discover what innovators need to get their startup off the ground.

Welcome to the Midweek Memo: a weekly digest of the city’s top tech events, personnel moves, job openings, and industry opportunities.

Before we get into this, check out the results from our weekly poll: On Sunday, we asked how many holiday events you’d been to so far. Everyone’s been to at least one, but 36 percent of you have lost count — and need help!

Oh — and a heads up. This will be our last email in 2023 for you, our community. We’ll be back in your inboxes on January 3 — see you then!

Now, on to your Midweek Memo…
