New companies in the group include MiraLend, Almost Home Financial, Built With Humanity, the Tiny Heights, Blue Zero Homes, Affordable Housing Data Hub, Boomers Collaborative Foundation and MEASURE. The introductory showcase day will take place on Dec. 17, 6 p.m., at Impact Hub’s West Monroe Street location. Reservations are available here.
