The Capital Network (TCN) today announces the acquisition of Boston based, Greenhorn Connect, the leading crowd-source calendar for Boston’s local entrepreneur community. The convergence of the two entities will further enhance the power of a single source calendar of programs and events targeted at Boston’s entrepreneur community.
“TCN has over twenty five years of experience in helping early-stage entrepreneurs get investor-ready. We see Greenhorn Connect as a community entity and we are its next custodian,” said Sam Hammar, Executive Director, The Capital Network. “The newly formed partnership with Greenhorn Connect will allow TCN to be a part of a startup’s journey from innovation to acquisition. “
For hundreds of years, Boston has been a breeding ground for revolutionary ideas. The areas 330,000 college university students fuel the innovation economy as entrepreneurs and workforce. Using Greenhorn’s established and proven model, TCN will have the ability to connect student entrepreneurs with future investors and employers.
“My goal when I started Greenhorn Connect was that it would continue to serve the Boston startup and student communities 10 years after I started it,” said Greenhorn Connect co-Founder Jason Evanish. “After 5 years, I see that the best way to ensure its future is to put it in the capable hands of The Capital Network who can give it much more attention and resources than I could and continue the mission.”
