John Harthorne, Founder of MassChallenge, to deliver keynote speech at Foundation for MetroWest’s Community Leadership Breakfast

Foundation for MetroWest is pleased to announce the keynote speaker for the eighth annual Community Leadership Breakfast: John Harthorne, founder and former CEO of MassChallenge.

The Community Leadership Breakfast brings together 350 corporate decision makers and civic leaders in conversation and highlights the Foundation’s work to make MetroWest a stronger, more sustainable community. Our region is home to thriving businesses, and giving back to the local community is an essential part of a conscientious and successful business model. This annual event highlights businesses that play an important role in strengthening the community and inspires others to integrate community philanthropy into their own business models.

John earned his MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 2007. While at school, John won Grand Prize in the 2007 MIT $100K Business Plan Competition and received the 2007 Patrick J. McGovern Award for impact on quality and visibility of entrepreneurship at MIT. He also led the 10th annual MIT Global Startup Workshop (GSW) held in Trondheim, Norway. The Boston Business Journal has identified John as one of Boston’s 50 Most Influential Business Leaders alongside the CEOs of Akamai Technologies, Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Boston Celtics. The World Economic Forum also elected John as one of the 2013 Young Global Leaders alongside Chelsea Clinton and Tony Hsieh, and Ernst & Young voted John as Social Entrepreneur of the Year in New England for 2013.

In 2010, John co-founded MassChallenge, the most startup-friendly accelerator on the planet. No equity and not-for-profit, MassChallenge is obsessed with helping entrepreneurs across any industry. They also reward the highest-impact startups through a competition to win a portion of several million dollars in equity-free cash awards. Through MassChallenge’s global network of accelerators in Boston, Israel, Switzerland, Mexico, Rhode Island, Austin and Houston, and unrivaled access to corporate partners, MassChallenge entrepreneurs are creating a massive impact – driving growth and creating value the world over. To date, 1,975 MassChallenge alumni have raised over $4.3 billion of funding, have generated over $2.5 billion of revenue, and have created over 120,000 jobs.

The Community Leadership Breakfast will be held on Friday, October 25, 2019 from 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM at the Boston Marriott Newton at 2345 Commonwealth Avenue in Newton, Massachusetts. Tickets are available now and can be purchased at foundationformetrowest.org/CLB or by calling 508-647-2260.
