Session Title: The Inbound Revolution


When HubSpot Co-founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah introduced inbound in 2006, it was with the mission of reaching the world in a more helpful and human way. Inbound offered businesses an alternative to traditional tactics like cold calling, billboard ads, direct mailing, and other intrusive "outbound" methods. It instead focused on creating quality content that pulled people toward your company and product, where they naturally wanted to be, allowing marketers and salespeople to attract, convert, close and delight over time.

Now, nearly ten years later, that simple mission has become a global movement. With thousands of customers around the world, millions of blog visitors in several major languages, and the annual INBOUND event (which attracted 14,000+ registered attendees in 2015), we are in the midst of a revolution.

On April 27th, join HubSpot VP of Marketing Cindy Goodrich as she discusses inbound, HubSpot and what it takes to build a pillar company with a vibrant culture. Afterwords, you'll get an inside look at our award-winning culture with a full tour of our awesome new office space at Two Canal.

Special Message to Attendees:
Please come directly to HubSpot's new offices at 2 Canal Park, Cambridge, MA 02141, across the street from our headquarters in the Davenport. 
  • If you enter from First Street, you can walk down the long hallway and follow signage to the session. 
  • If you enter from Canal Park, you may immediately turn right and follow signage to the session. 

Thanks for choosing HubSpot and we look forward to meeting you in person!

Session Title: Rethinking the Smart City - Where IoT Vision Meets Actionable Insights

This NewCo session will show our technology and how we've built easily customizable solar "brains" that can host different sensors. This will also involve a tour around our shop / office space. We will talk about the experiences at the Media Lab and working with city solutions that lead to the founding of Soofa. This involves the issues within a city and our general frustration with major incumbents being the only "smart city" companies. We will explain our plans and visions for our future direction, as well as gathering participant feedback around what they feel is an issue within the city or what aspects could use improvement. All throughout this questions and open discussion would be welcomed - we hope to create a good conversation among the group around the uses / needs of urban environments. This will definitely incorporate robust discussions about the future, our strategy process involves rethinking the way virtually any public space-based thing works. On a high level, we are very clear about our direction and issues being solved. But, we always wonder, is there a huge issue in cities that we are missing? Hopefully this session could encourage everyone to view the urban experience through an alien lens, rather than accepting things because they are "how things are". A good storyteller can draw people out of their everyday experiences and push them to consider regular things in entirely new ways.

Session Title: What you can see with Big Data
Join us for a virtual tour of some of the ways health care big data can be explored to reveal insights that improve the care you receive.  Everyone is talking about big data.  But what does it really mean?  In health care,  new data sources make it possible to look at large numbers of patients and identify those at risk for health problems, or who could benefit from particular treatments.  In this session, our CEO, Paul Bleicher will provide an overview of what OptumLabs is doing at the frontier of health care data science and discovery.  Our Innovation team, led by Sanji Fernando, will then share interactive examples of how health care big data can reveal the path to a disease, or even how the community you live in can influence your health. 

We are located at One Main Street, in Kendall Square, by the Longfellow Bridge.  You can take the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop and walk a few minutes to our building.  For those who prefer to drive, the Kendall Square Parking lot is just around the corner.  Their website is http://kendallsquare.org/related/parking/.  Upon arrival, please check in at the front desk on the main floor before proceeding to our office on the 10th floor.
