Startup Institute Presents the 2013 Italics Awards

image

Boston is the birthplace to numerous successful startups, and there is no doubt Boston’s startup ecosystem is gaining serious momentum. When we speak about the robust growth we have seen to date, we often credit this to the various incubator programs, business plan competitions, investors, availability of mentors and the ample raw talent from the area’s universities. At Startup Institute, we believe an overlooked, but no less important factor of success are a handful of individuals who helped shape the Boston startup community into what it is today. We are excited to host the 2nd Annual Italics Awards on September 16th at the Microsoft NERD Center.

The 2013 Italics Awards Winners are an incredibly talented group of entrepreneurs.

Ben Einstein, Managing Director at Bolt
Brent Grinna, Founder & CEO at Evertrue
Colin Raney, Managing Director & Associate Partner at Ideo
Bob Mason, Co-Founder of Brightcove & Mentor at Techstars
Greg Selkoe, Founder & CEO at Karmaloop

We hope you will join us in celebrating these entrepreneurs and their contributions to the Boston startup community.
