Entrepreneurs want to keep office space affordable

If you haven’t read Casey Ross’s story today about the business community’s impressions of Boston mayor-elect Marty Walsh, you should check it out. There are some very thoughtful comments from local business leaders in there. In fact, the team of reporters conducting interviews for the story came up with way too much to fit in a single article, so I figured I’d share some bonus material from the tech sector. I spoke with a half dozen tech entrepreneurs about their hopes for and expectations of the incoming Walsh administration, and picked up on two major themes (besides wanting better STEM education in city schools, which Launch Angels chief executive Shereen Shermak addressed in today’s paper): They want the new mayor to help keep office space affordable and to improve public transit in the Innovation District.
This excerpt is taken from the article ‘Tech entrepreneurs want Walsh to keep office space affordable, improve public transit’. To read the full text of the article, please visit Boston Globe.
