Paula Long named to Boston Tech 30

Whether you’ve spent your entire life in New England or have only visited the area a few times, it doesn’t take long to notice some of the region’s homegrown assets: fall foliage, quaint towns, rocky coastlines and a hub of education and innovation. Native Bostonians are known for their sports teams spirit and accents in movies, but as Boston Magazine recently noted, the city’s bragging rights also include “the birthplace of email, Facebook, and the computerized spreadsheet, of public schools and American higher education,” not to mention “the microwave oven, the burglar alarm, and the disposable razor.”

In a region bursting with ideas and smart people, technology and entrepreneurship are driving forces that aren’t likely to subside anytime soon. Boston Magazine’s Tech 30 highlights the leaders of the region’s innovation-centric economy, billing them as “the people you need to meet to turn your big idea into a reality.” The list includes venture capitalists, educators and veterans of local companies including HubSpot, Wayfair – and DataGravity.

As Kyle Alspach, the reporter who compiled the list, wrote, “Every entrepreneur aims to make visionary bets about where markets are heading, and they’re almost never right—unless they’re Paula Long.” Paula’s profile highlights her ongoing quest to simplify IT, exemplified at both EqualLogic, DataGravity and among startups she advises.
