They fly. They sing. They build. They race. They played professional basketball, were nationally ranked fencers and rock climbers. They perform on stage with Yo-Yo Ma, and collect America’s Cup yachts.
It’s no surprise that the entrepreneurs, CEOs, angels, VCs, inventors, and other members of the Boston innovation community Xconomy covers every day are pretty smart and talented when it comes to business.
It’s probably not much of a surprise that they have a lot of other talents as well. But that doesn’t mean we still aren’t a bit blown away by some of the things they do—from singing to building their own flying machines.
One of the things Xconomy does every now and then is highlight some of those hidden talents in those we cover. Here in Boston, we haven’t done so in quite some time—and we’ve never done it through pictures. So have a look at the snapshots above to learn some strange-but-true facts about Boston area innovators. Some we have written about before, but others are brand new to our pages. We hope you find it fun.
