Each week, we ask a different area innovator to share the meet-ups, talks, and other must-see events happening in their world. This week, Sarah Hodges shares where she’s heading on the Social Circuit.
Who she is:
Sarah Hodges is co-founder of Intelligent.ly, a company designed to help entrepreneurs learn how to succeed in the fast-paced startup economy of Boston. She is also head of marketing at Boston startup Smarterer and advisor to Flybridge Capital. Hodges says she is passionate about growing the Boston startup ecosystem. Prior to Smarterer, she worked as director of marketing at RunKeeper, a smartphone application, and helped the team cultivate a community of more than 10 million fitness enthusiasts.
Where she’s going:
How to Get a Job at An EdTech Company: July 8, 6 to 8 p.m. at LearnLaunch. Tickets are $22.50 on EventBrite.
“The EdTech community in Boston is booming, and LearnLaunch has become a valuable hub for the sector. Through working at Smarterer, I’ve seen the space explode in recent years, and am excited by all the new opportunities that have emerged. This should be a solid event for recent grads and anyone hoping to break into EdTech.’’
How to Hire an Army of Interns to Help Build Your Business: July 10, 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Intelligent.ly. Tickets are $27.37 on EventBrite.
“Jennifer Fremont-Smith, CEO of Smarterer, has powerhouse approach to finding, hiring and managing interns. Her strategy has been so successful that Smarterer has hired 4 knockout interns in the last 2 years – pretty amazing.

Startup Marketing Bootcamp: July 11, 4 to 6 p.m. at the Harvard Innovation Lab. Free tickets are still available for Harvard University students on EventBrite.
“I’m a huge fan of the iLab – it’s pretty incredible to see how Harvard is empowering student entrepreneurs with access to space, mentorship and resources. I love the idea of a “crash course’’ in startup marketing; this should be an action-packed introduction, and Kate Castle, from Flybridge Capital, always delivers fantastic advice.’’
