If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes, we have to throw plans and predictions out the window.
Each year, we at BostInno look back at our coverage from the last 12 months — all the launches, funding rounds, new deals and partnerships, awards and more — and try to identify the startups that are on the precipice of something big. In 2020, the narrative was a bit different. Some startups had to scale back their plans and cut costs in March, but were able to bounce back by the fall. Some leaders moved up their public launches in the name of helping clients. Others pivoted their strategies to address this particular moment.
Whatever the individual story, there is still a common thread that runs through Boston-area entrepreneurs: All of them have proved to be resilient in the face of unprecedented challenges. So here we are, making predictions again, taking note of the startups that we expect big things from in the next 12 months and beyond.
