Cape Ann Innovators Collaborative – CAIC

Objective: Cape Ann Innovators Collaborative provides a social networking forum for innovators in a variety of fields, one that will inform and inspire them, with the ultimate purpose of sustainable economic development and job growth on Cape Ann.

Background: CAIC is a collaborative of innovators, entrepreneurs, makers, artists, designers, developers and producers dedicated to supporting people from all walks of life in their endeavors to create lasting, innovative change, with the ultimate objective of growing the economy and creating new jobs. Meet-up events produced by CAIC will cover a broad range of innovative topics including science & technology, the blue / maritime economy, finance, 21st century manufacturing, the arts, and more, with an overarching concern for sustainability, both ecological and economic.  Our intent is to host a number of networking events each year, each focused on a specific topic and featuring panelists that are experts in that field. All events will be free and open to the public. As we grow, we will broaden the scope of our offerings.

This is an exciting time for Cape Ann.  We invite you to join our group, attend our events, and help us grow your business as you contribute to this ever more amazing place to work, to live, and to play.

Please contact us if you would like to join our planning crew as we shape this year’s events and work on a framework that will sustain the initiative well into the future.

CAIC will work in partnership with the North Shore Technology Council as well as with municipalities, government agencies, community organizations, local firms and academic institutions.
