These past two years of hybrid work have reminded us that we’re more than just people working at companies. We’re human beings with even more important roles and responsibilities outside of the office. And we all want what’s best for our families.
Family has always been at the heart of everything I do. As I think about my own family situation, or that of any member of my team, I take great comfort in knowing we have such a tremendous resource in Boston Children’s Hospital nearby. That’s why I’m so happy to join the Boston Children’s Hospital Philanthropic Board of Advisors, a truly special group of hospital supporters and advocates.
Throughout my career, I’ve tried to pass down the lessons I’ve learned to the next generation — many of whom will become future entrepreneurs who just may change the world. That is why, over the years, I’ve worked closely with the Boys and Girls Club of Manchester, Stay Work Play New Hampshire, Rock On Foundation, The Joe Yukica New Hampshire Chapter of the National Football Foundation and my alma mater, Bentley University, to name some. A few years back, my wife Katie and I established the York Family Foundation for our philanthropic and charitable efforts, focused primarily on supporting kids.
In this new role, I am honored to be advocating for our most vulnerable young people. I want to lend my network and skills to help the great institution continue its work of helping children in need. This organization is something our entire startup and technology network can get behind.
The children of today are the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. They deserve health, happiness and knowledge. I will continue to work, as best as I can, to ensure as many kids as possible get access to those opportunities.
That is a future worth investing in.
