We took a few weeks off — we’ve been busy preparing for Startup Boston Week 2021
this September! — but we are back and so incredibly excited to celebrate some local startup milestones. Rather than celebrate funding rounds and acquisitions (both of which are amazing!), we use this series to highlight the wins that founders and their teams have accomplished, that often go unnoticed.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” –Nolan Bushnell, Entrepreneur
