Andy Ory is an amazing guy. He is incredibly humble, super smart, and happens to have founded and led 2 startups to major success. His company Acme Packet was the best performing stock of 2010 as designated by Forbes. He also believes that Boston has its own “startup mafia” ala Paypal – out of the original Boston Technologies – which has spawned many successful companies including Priority Call, Cha Cha, Art Technology Group, and Acme Packet. I have been lucky to get to know Andy as a part of the work that we have done together with the Mass Technology Collaborative and with 12×12. Here is the full write up I did on Andy for Mass High Tech.
Andy believes that the true measure of startup success is how many other companies a startup spawns. So driven yet so humble. Andy is a true example that entrepreneurs everywhere can emulate and look up to. Andy rocks!!!
