AAFCPAs is excited to announce that Janice O’Reilly, CPA, CGMA, Partner in the Consulting Division of AAFCPAs and leader of the Managed Accounting Solutions (MAS) practice, has been appointed and agreed to serve on the Board of Directors of MassVentures.
MassVentures is a quasi-public venture capital firm focused on fueling the Massachusetts innovation economy by funding early-stage, high-growth startups as they move from concept to commercialization. The firm invests in technology-driven companies across a broad range of industries, including: green technology, healthcare IT, industrial automation & robotics, internet & digital media, and mobile.
As a governing Board member, Janice will act as a trustee of the organization’s assets and exercise due diligence to oversee that MassVentures is well-managed and that its financial stability remains sustainable.
“I am excited to join the Board of MassVentures and contribute to the success of first-time entrepreneurs disrupting nascent industries,” said Janice. “The organization has a stellar reputation for leveraging investments that generate measurable value and serves as a catalyst for Massachusetts’ innovation economy.”
Eighteen companies in MassVentures’ portfolio have gone public, so Janice’s background as angel investor, board member, consultant, president, treasurer, and former CFO of a publicly-traded Massachusetts-based technology company makes her well-suited to advise the organization on the financial implications of strategic business decisions.
