On May 1 in front of a packed MassMutal Center, Steve Wozniak told stories of his early days working with Steve Jobs to co-found Apple, and inspired the audience to follow their entrepreneurial impulses.
Woz’s talk was question-and-answer style, moderated by NECN’s Latoyia Edwards, and including questions submitted in advance by audience members and through the Forum’s Facebook page.
Before his talk at the MassMutual Center, Wozniak visited Tech Foundry, a computer education program downtown. He met dozens of high school students and some of the winners of the 2015 Valley Venture Mentors Accelerator Awards.
The event was made possible by generous support from MassMutual, as well as sponsors Wilbraham & Monson Academy, Paragus Strategic IT, the Markens Group, and MassLive, and underwriters Community Foundation of Western MA, Dianne and Paul Doherty, Harold Grinspoon, Moors & Cabot, and the Western Mass EDC.
