Yesterday, The Boston Globe published its "Globe 100" list, which includes a feature of the top 30 most innovative people in Massachusetts-based business. HubSpot is very excited to announce that HubSpot's co-founders, CEO Brian Halligan and CTO Dharmesh Shah are among the visionaries on The Globe's list.

The list includes the top three innovators in each of ten sectors: banking, finance, and insurance; biotech and pharmaceutical; energy and manufacturing; entertainment, food, retail, and travel; high tech; law and education; media and advertising; medicine; nonprofits and philanthropies; and real estate and development.

Compiled with the help of 70 judges including venture capitalists, economists, top executives, academics, and other leaders in the Massachusetts business community, the list was voted down to 30 from more than 200 nominations.

“Our Most Innovative list reflects the depth of talent in the state and why it is such an exciting place to do business,” said Boston Globe Business Editor Shirley Leung.

In advance of the list's release, NECN aired a segment last Friday to promote the Globe 100. Dharmesh joined Boston Globe's Assistant Business Editor Michael Warshaw on the The Morning Show to discuss innovation in Massachusetts. Watch the full segment below or access it here:

In addition to HubSpot's co-founders, Founding Partner Rich Miner of recent HubSpot investor Google Ventures also tops the list in the media and advertising category, and Constant Contact Chief Executive Gail Goodman, who sits on HubSpot's Board of Directors, also joins the list.
