The economic buzz of the burgeoning Boston technology scene is largely clustered in Cambridge’s Kendall Square and the Innovation District in South Boston. Gilad Rosenzweig wants to expand its reach. The MIT graduate is planning to open a startup space for local entrepreneurs, Smarter in the City, this summer in Dudley Square. That is, if he can find someone from the tech industry to pay for it.
