This week, DataXu CEO and serial entrepreneur Mike Baker was named a finalist for the inaugural NEVY Awards, presented by the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA). Mike is up for Entrepreneur of the Year in the Technology category, along with finalists from Actifio, Crashlytics, Acme Packet and BzzAgent.
Winners will be selected by a committee of investors and entrepreneurs and announced on May 1 at an awards party at The Sinclair in Cambridge. According to the NEVCA, this will be a not-to-be-missed event: “No squirming in your seat or polite clapping here. The NEVYS are a night for non-stop cocktails, awesome food, and a killer crowd of hard charging entrepreneurs and VCs who are building the next generation of companies that matter–right here in our backyard.”
