InsightSquared to Compete in TUGG Entrepreneur Games

Employees will Participate in 2nd Annual Competitive Games and Challenges to Benefit Local Charity

CAMBRIDGE, MA – June 11, 2014 – InsightSquared, the award-winning provider of business analytics software for small and midsize companies, announced they will be participating in the 2nd annual Entrepreneur Games taking place on Thursday, June 19 at 4:00 pm at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston.  This event is presented by TUGG, which is dedicated to catalyzing and spreading social entrepreneurship in New England.  Proceeds will be going to BUILD, whose mission is to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low-income students through high school to college success.

600+ entrepreneurs, investors and community supports will be in attendance, with over 100 companies participating.  There will be more than 25 athletic games and mental challenges taking place that evening such as volleyball, “TUGG of War,” dodgeball, and obstacle courses.

InsightSquared became involved with BUILD through InsightSquared CEO, Fred Shilmover, who serves as the Venture Adviser for Apptitude, the teen-run company that created its prototype app at a Hackathon that was hosted at InsightSquared back in December, and provided its seed funding. Shilmover says he is happy to be able to assist young entrepreneurs and be a part of the BUILD program. “When I met Ayele Shakur at TUGG’s Tech Gives Back event, I knew I had to be a part of the effort. Unequal access to education creates an unlevel playing field, and BUILD Boston’s program takes a step in the right direction of leveling it. I’m proud to contribute, albeit in a small way, to the effort.”  BUILD connects all of its student-run businesses to venture advisors and mentors from the business community.
