Both men reflected on the ever-growing nature of the tech industry, their successful careers as luminaries, and especially the enabling entrepreneurial environment of Boston. MITX Future Leader Group member Matt Lauzon, Founder & CEO of Gemvara - a winner of 2 awards - also shared these sentiments, as he noted the energetic ecosystem of the region that is perpetuating such things as Innovation Month and the execution of inventive startups like his own.
