Sponsor a Refresh Boston Event

Refresh Boston events are free to the public and are supported by contributions from local companies (and individuals). We meet monthly at the Microsoft NERD Center, which is free for our use. Microsoft is kind enough to provide attendees with soda, coffee and other drinks during our events. What we're looking for from sponsors is a monetary contribution to cover the cost of food for attendees and any raffle prizes we can give away at our events.

Send us an email if you'd like to support Refresh Boston.
