Mass High Tech, The Voice of New England Innovation, today introduced the 15 recipients of its 2011 MHT All-Stars Awards. The All-Stars Awards recognize driven and influential leaders of New England’s innovation economy. This is the 16th year of the awards program, and the first time the All-Stars program is being combined with the Boston Business Journal’s Rising Stars honorees — 15 innovative leaders under age 30 in Greater Boston businesses.
The 2011 Mass High Tech honorees represent a broad range of technology and service sectors, including robotics, software, economic development, ecommerce, entrepreneurship, medical devices and cleantech. They were selected from more than 100 nominees recommended by the technology community.
“These All-Stars have a proven record in leading not only their own companies but in helping their industry thrive,” said Mass High Tech publisher Douglas Banks. “By combining this year’s awards program with the BBJ’s Rising Stars in Business, we are offering our All-Stars another opportunity for mentorship while giving the younger generation access to innovative role models.”
The All-Stars will be profiled in a special report on MassHighTech.com, and will be recognized at an evening awards celebration and networking reception on Wednesday, Nov. 16, at the House of Blues in Boston. More information about the event and registration are available online.
“We have an opportunity to highlight the achievements of proven leaders in the technology space — tech luminaries — and the outstanding talents of a new generation of leaders — Rising Stars — who will provide the innovation that will help their businesses to reach new levels of success for years to come,” said Chris McIntosh, publisher of the Boston Business Journal.
