The awards gala for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalists in Boston on June 27 at the Marriott Copley Place was an impressive event. I felt like I was at the Oscars for New England entrepreneurs. The black tie event is the culmination of the EY Entrepreneur of the Year process at which the winners are announced, having been selected by an independent panel of judges.
Congratulations to all of the Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 New England Award winners.
Similar to the Oscars when presenting the lead actor or actress in a movie, finalists are introduced accompanied by a 45 second video vignette. Each vignette was extremely educational succinctly sharing the accomplishments of the finalists and their companies. From bakery company, Wicked Good Cupcakes, to Paint Nite, to TESARO, providing transformative therapies to people bravely facing cancer, the stories of innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities were amazing.
Here we’d like to share the video for Acacia Communications’ Raj Shanmugaraj, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Founders Benny P. Mikkelsen, Mehrdad Givehchi and Christian J. Rasmussen. We hope you enjoy it!
