Since the 1600s, Boston has been a font of world-changing innovations -- public education, abolition, the first organ transplant, the telephone. Pioneering advances in everything from rockets to robotics. It all happened here. The question is, why Boston? What makes this city special?
Through fifty engaging spotlight stories Dr. Robert Krim and tech journalist Alan Earls break down the building blocks, or "innovation drivers", that have made Boston a powerhouse of invention and brought it back time and again from four major economic collapses. From boom to decline and back to boom, Boston has maintained an ability to reinvent itself. At a time when the national and global economy is reeling from the pandemic, Boston Made lays out a roadmap through adversity for a dynamic, world-class city.
