VentureFizz

Buzz from the Week: Apr 19th – Apr 25th

Two weeks ago, Eric
Paley
from Founder
Collective
held his first Founder
Dialogues
event.  Each event will include a sit down discussion with a
successful entrepreneur in the Boston area.  The first one featured Tim
Healy
, the CEO, Chairman, and Co-Founder of EnerNOC.  

We have the full
video
of the event posted on VentureFizz.
  I highly encourage everybody
to watch
this amazing success story by clicking here
It is very important to celebrate and learn from the success stories in our
backyard and this is definitely a great one to hear
We want to thank Eric Paley for allowing us to publish this video on VentureFizz
and a very special thank you to the team at VisibleGains
for providing their interactive video software solution for web-related
marketing.
