CIC supports events that drive the innovation ecosystem. We build and foster community connections by providing opportunities for entrepreneurs to collaborate, network, and innovate. A variety of events occur at CIC, such as sector-specific collaborations, programming meetups, pitching exercises, startup workshops, and panel discussions. The types of events we support benefit entrepreneurs by giving them the tools, skills, and resources needed to flourish. To help strengthen ties and involvement with the community, we welcome events hosted by both CIC members and outside organizations.

Lighthouse – CIC’s Premier Event Space

We are pleased to announce the opening of our new Lighthouse event space, on the 20th floor of 50 Milk Street at CIC Boston. With floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding about three-quarters of the space and overlooking downtown Boston and the Charles River, Lighthouse is well-suited for networking events, panels, lectures, dinners or VIP events. It can be divided into 3 separate rooms–West, North, and East–via collapsible, soundproof sliding glass doors. Each room has a full whiteboard wall, projector, screen, and sound system. The standing capacity for the entire space is 180 people.
