At the helm of the Boston expansion is Andy Jacques who is no stranger to Boston’s startup ecosystem. As a consultant, his company SYNERGY has helped countless startups bring their innovations to life as well as producing an annual black tie event called “Timeless,” bringing more than 700 founders & investors together every December to toast to their milestones for the past 10 years. “As a startup founder myself, I’m extremely eager to help entrepreneurs find their voice in Boston’s fast paced landscape. I’m also humbled to be able to combine my love for throwing fun events with my passion for connecting people to each other,” says Andy.
Community ambassadors who will be helping Andy manage the Boston launch will be Ande Lyons a Startup Founder Coach who, after founding 4 businesses of her own, now mentors entrepreneurs. Ande will be key in evangelizing the impact that Founders Live can have on startups. Marvin Vilma will also be leading many community engagement initiatives and partnership outreach.
With the Boston launch dated for July 25th at the WeWork - South Station flagship location, Founders Live intends to not only enhance Boston’s growing startup community, but to also expose Boston founders to a global community of world-class entrepreneurs through their live streaming online platform during each monthly event.
