#WINNING

4th Annual BUILD Entrepreneur Games

The Entrepreneur Games is the hottest team-building event of the summer for Boston's tech venture capital, and start-up companies. This year, the event brought more than 1,000 members of the business community together for an afternoon of fierce, but friendly competition. Participants competed in more than 40 games, from team events like dodgeball, volleyball and tug-of-war, to individual events like Dance Dance Revolution, corn hole, ping pong and more. 

All the blood, sweat and tears shed wasn't just be for bragging rights: the Games raised over $200K for BUILD in Boston, an organization dedicated to using entrepreneurship and experiential learning to ignite the potential of youth in under-resourced communities and equip them for high school, college and career success. The 2016 BUILD Entrepreneur Games was all about entrepreneurs supporting entrepreneurs.
