Polaris and Portfolio Win Big at the 2014 NEVY Awards

kb rockstar Wednesday evening, May 14, 2014 was a great night for Polaris Partners and our portfolio companies as we gathered together at the House of Blues in Boston for the 2014 NEVY Awards.  Hosted by the New England Venture Capital Association, the NEVY’s celebrate venture capital and innovation in our region and recognize individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding contributions to our ecosystem.

It was a fantastic event filled with amazing energy.  Here at Polaris, we were incredibly proud of our firm and our companies who were collectively nominated in seven separate categories.  At the end of the evening we took home five awards including:
