MassChallenge Friends and Partners,
As Im sure you know, Im addicted to startups. Ive been at MassChallenge since the early days, and I was hooked immediately. Since day one, I knew the entrepreneurs and this community were positioned for amazing impact.
Five years later, Im excited to further invest in the innovation ecosystem as MassChallenge Bostons Managing Director. This is a new role that affords me an opportunity to expand our impact and spend time aligning interests around the people everyone loves the entrepreneurs.
MassChallenge is filled with smart, talented, and driven individuals. Together we have seen immense growth because we collaborate actively and help each other develop new skills and knowledge. It has enabled us to transform into the organization we are today. While Im honored to have this new role, Im especially proud of the team of people we are working with, especially Roman — our new Senior Director of Programs and Operations. Together, we will work closely with the Boston team to catalyze growth & engagement in the community. Our focus will be on attracting top quality entrepreneurs and increasing our support for them. We are committed to helping build great companies and creating value for all of our stakeholders.
The Boston program is strong because of the amazing community that engages with us. This year we hope to impact even more companies, we will invest in our mentorship program, and we will continue to grow strong partnerships. We invite you to get involved and help entrepreneurs win!
I want to personally thank all of you for your support and engagement! Please be sure to check out our website for a listing of upcoming events.
