Alumni testimonial

“I can't say enough about the impact that CTA Boston had for our ExpertFile. It's a super well organized program, and the CMS Mentors and CTA Boston program staff are passionate about adding value for the participating companies. We raised additional Angel investment in Boston while enrolled in the program and the program mentors were amazing. One of their introductions resulted in a partnership with one of the largest media distribution players in the world. If you are lucky enough to be selected for CTA, make sure you get your company to Boston!" –  Peter Evans, Co-Founder & CEO, ExpertFile

“Ten years and 30 minutes. That’s what it took for me to meet with Microsoft. Ten years of me trying to connect and only 30 minutes after arriving in Boston with an introduction from Boston’s Senior Trade Commissioner. A Microsoft partnership was signed within a week. That’s just one example of how your business accelerates with the CTA @ Boston.” –  Tim Vasko, CEO Finaeos
