Atlas Venture 08/25/14
Atlas Venture focuses on life science and technology innovation. They are also well-engaged with their investments, commissioning concept-driven portraits of their promising entrepreneurs. I had the pleasure of working with two of these companies, both based in Cambridge. CustomMade is an online marketplace connecting buyers who want unique creations with makers; sqrrl makes big data secure, accessible, and scalable. Some ask for more cowbell, and some ask for more squirrels (thanks to Katie Woznick for complying with gusto).Chris Lynch is a one of the Atlas team; I see him as a rock star with more mirth than his image lets on.
