The 2017 NEVY Awards Recap: Winners & Pictures

The New England Venture Capital Association pulled out all the stops for the 5th installment of the NEVY awards. Not only is it a great opportunity to recognize the many accomplishments across the Tech & Life Science industries, but it is also a good excuse to gather as a community.

The Mardi Gras theme did not disappoint, as people dressed in masks, beads, and hats. There were various professional performers in terms of acrobats and jugglers. Plus, lots of great food, drinks (open bar), and of course... lots of networking.
