by Jessica Valeriani, Eagle Tribune

Ten startup companies were featured at Mass Innovation Nights hosted by IndusPAD Wednesday night.


An event aimed at creating visibility of local startups and entrepreneurs, while also offering them connections and networking opportunities, the 123rd Mass Innovation Nights welcomed startups that focus on selling apparel or textiles.


It was the first one to be held in Lawrence.


The startups featured at Wednesday's event were Magnomer, CathWear, Hope Sews, IG MODA, Southwick, gunaPAJAMA, Keysie, Terracea, Acadia Deerskin Chukka Boot, and Laced Boston.


People in attendance were able to speak with the founders of each startup to learn about their products, and the reasons behind their formations. They were encouraged to cast votes on their favorite.


Four of the startups were chosen prior to the event to give five-minute presentations on their products. Carlton said they earned the right to present through online voting.
