Boston April Meetups: What to do for the Tech-Savvy Entrepreneur in You

Credit: www.NewEnglandMagazine.comThe sun is finally peeking through the gray skies of Boston, beckoning Bostonians to emerge from their wintery confines and bebop around the city. Thusly, I set out to find a few meetups for the tech-savvy entrepreneur in you to explore this April. (Disclaimer: I have a bit of a love affair with the New England Research & Development Center here in Cambridge, so forgive me if the recommendations are a bit NERD-centric.)
