Boston WIN Lab Sponsors
Burns & Levinson understands that each client has unique needs and as a Boston-based firm with more than 125 attorneys, they are large enough to represent clients in complex and sophisticated matters, yet small and proactive enough to meet those needs. Burns & Levinson works with clients across a variety of industries from traditional manufacturing and service businesses, high-technology and life sciences companies, and emerging companies to scientists, entrepreneurs and international-based companies. Their experience in providing business advice to start-ups and entrepreneurs makes them a natural fit with the Boston WIN Lab and we are thrilled to work with them through office hours, content sessions, and space usage.
Wolf & Company is one of the top certified public accounting firms in the Northeast region. They provide audit and accounting services to businesses in all stages of development. Their sponsorship of the Boston WIN Lab, and additional donation of time and expertise, illustrates their commitment to growing diverse business leaders in and around the startup ecosystem.
