President & CEO Tom Hopcroft and iRobot Chairman, CEO & Co-Founder and
MassTLC Trustee Colin Angle welcomed the Attorney General and leaders from several
MA technology companies. They addressed a host of issues related to economic
growth and opportunity from how to respond to challenges in developing,
attracting and retaining talent; new practices for educating future technology
leaders to how to develop a bold vision of innovation and success for MA’s future.
Attorney General is knowledgeable and well-versed in the tech sector. In 2014 she
hosted the National Cyber Crime Conference in Norwood, MA, which she heralds as
the “biggest state cyber crime event in the nation.” She also participated in
the national campaign, “Hour of Code,” which emphasizes computer science
education in high school.

is a highly motivated member community that welcomes the opportunity to call upon Beacon Hill to support initiatives
that address talent issues, expanded computer and STEM education and obstacles
in scaling. In addition to those key topics, continuing to champion MA as an
innovation mecca will further strengthen the Commonwealth’s capacity for
economic success and sustainable growth.
