Meet Our President

Welcome to OPEN Boston - the founding chapter of the Global OPEN organization! For over 20 years, we have been a leading networking platform for both professionals and entrepreneurs - regardless of your industry, role or experience. We have some really exciting events planned for this year - including some virtual fireside chats with seasoned professionals leading up to our large annual event with prominent executives (and great food) once we are able to get back together in person.

OPEN Boston continues to advance its mission of promoting entrepreneurship, leadership, networking and professional development. Our members include tech entrepreneurs, senior corporate executives, health care professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners.

Whether it is around mentorship, professional development for entrepreneurs or professionals, networking for executive and business-owners, fundraising for startups or serving as a network of advisors with a wide range of skills and expertise, OPEN Boston is here to provide the platform to do so.

Join our network and build your connections and relationships into this dynamic community of ambitious and successful business leaders, business owners, professionals and rising stars. Let’s grow together!
