    Mass High Tech All-Stars AwardsToday we're announcing that HubSpot's very own Chief Technology Officer and Founder Dharmesh Shah is a recipient of the Mass High Tech 2009 All-Star Awards in the social media category.  The All-Star Awards (now in their 14th year) recognize 15 dynamic and influential leaders of New England's innovation economy.

    Dharmesh's leadership and direction has helped HubSpot to continuously grow in customers and employees, and his innovation in creating HubSpot's free marketing tools at http://grader.com has earned HubSpot a number of accolades and awards. Dharmesh's popular blog about the science of startups, http://OnStartups.com, is one of the top 10 most read startup blogs.

    "Technology continues to provide the fuel for economic recovery and growth in our region," said Michael Olivieri, publisher of Mass High Tech and the Boston Business Journal. "Even during the roughest periods of the recession, New England entrepreneurs brought forward new ideas and new tech companies. The individuals that we are honoring as All-Stars are thought leaders in their industries and continue to drive our innovation economy. These are the people who not only have achieved success in their own initiatives but have blazed a trail for other entrepreneurs to follow."

    "I feel so honored to be named one of the recipients of the Mass High Tech All-Stars Awards," said Dharmesh. "It's a privilege to be recognized as an innovative leader of social media in New England, and I'm thrilled to be in such good company among so many other distinguished innovators."

    Dharmesh is among such all-stars as Chairman, president and CEO of Constant Contact, Gail Goodman, and Scott Kirsner, Columnist and program chair/agenda developer at Future Forward Events.

    The honorees will be profiled in a special supplement in the November 4 edition of Mass High Tech.
