"I don't want us to be viewed just as a technology incubator. We need to think more broadly. I think we will have a greater impact on the economy if we think more broadly," Kaplan said.
Another goal of the night was to thank Manchester-based Dyn and the University of New Hampshire for their financial and other support during the transition.
The event also celebrated the changes the organization is undertaking and to describe its new model.
In the coming weeks, it will announce a lineup of programming geared toward entrepreneurs, including lunch and learn events and roundtable events that are educational and use outside resources to assist start-up businesses.
The accelerator program will be selective and specifically designed to help businesses "scale up" what they are working on.
Employee Steve Glenfield said he likes the synergistic model of having a number of different businesses housed under the same roof, even if they have nothing to do with one another.
