New Interview Series: Boston Entrepreneurs


we love boston entrepreneurs image

As we start winding down the summer and all start preparing for ‘back to school’, we thought it would be a good time for some entrepreneurial inspiration. Over the next few months I’ll be interviewing the local entrepreneurs and influencers that have committed to building great companies in Boston.

My interview format will be to ask the entrepreneurs questions that will help other startup and established entrepreneurs get insights they can’t get anywhere else. We’ll dig into the tougher questions and leave the “who was your greatest influence” crap to the other guys. Amongst others, we’ll ask questions about raising money, finding partners, retaining rock star staff, and weighing up the alternatives of location and funding sources.

Our first interview will be with one of the leading examples of local entrepreneurship, Dharmesh Shah, co-founder of Hubspot. We’ve lined up some awesome interviews so subscribe the the feed or follow us on twitter to be notified when the interviews go live.The Dharmesh interview will go up later today.

P.S. If you know of any Boston based entrepreneurs that you think would be great guests, please let me know.
