Nearly 1,000 tech, startup and corporate professionals competed yesterday in BUILD’s 4th Annual Entrepreneur Games at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito kicked off the event saying, “Boston is as strong as it is because of all of you, the entrepreneurs and innovators at work in this city.” Also speaking during the opening ceremony were John Barros, Chief of Economic Development for the City of Boston; David Chang, Entrepreneur in Residence, Harvard Business School & former COO of PayPal; Sasha Hoffman, Co-Founder, Fuzzy Compass & COO, Piaggio Group; Ayele Shakur, Regional Executive Director of BUILD Boston, and Sam Horn, former Boston Red Sox slugger.

The overall winner was Team Ireland, composed of employees of HubSpot, TD Bank, and The New England Venture Capital Association. The event raised more than $200,000 for BUILD, a nonprofit that teaches entrepreneurship to Boston high school students to help prepare them for success in college and in life.
