BetaBoston, the Boston Globe’s destination for the latest innovation and tech news in the Boston area, today announced Mavrck co-founder and CRO, Christopher Wolfel, among its 2015 ‘25 Most Innovative People Under 25’ honorees.
Wolfel is noted as one of the few 25-year-old co-founders and CROs in the city. In the past year, Wolfel has helped lead Mavrck through Techstars and Masschallenge and finished a round of series A funding, raising $2.5 million.
“It’s an honor to be selected with these 24 incredible individuals,” said Wolfel. “I’m thankful to all of the Mavrck team and everyone who has helped me get to this point that I have reached in my career. I look forward to continuing to innovate and contribute as much as possible to the Boston community as I push forward.”
This year’s winners also include fellow startup leaders and Northeastern alums Julian Jung, founder and CEO of Tablelist, Laura Marelic, founder and CEO of Scout, and Benjamin Anderson, co-founder and CEO of Amino Apps. Honorees were recognized as a “young person who’s full of potential, someone brimming with ideas and ambitions who you know you’re going to be keeping track of for years to come.” The full list is available here.
Wolfel is also a board member of Northeastern’s IDEA, the university’s venture accelerator, and a strategic advisor for Youth Cities, a program that provides education, mentorship, a wide network of contacts, funding, and real-life application opportunities in the areas of entrepreneurship and community-building.
