Aaron O'Hearn

Boston, Massachusetts, United States

Aaron is an energetic leader who enjoys getting to yes. Prior to co-founding the Startup Institute, he served as Head of Special Projects for Techstars Boston, creating various programs to improve the network of companies and investors. Abroad, he served as Entrepreneur in Residence at Le Camping, the first startup accelerator in France. There, he grew the mentor and investor communities across four countries and advised companies through their early product development and fundraising.

He aspires to help people find the work they love and support companies through their transformational growth phases. When he’s not speaking with students, he can be found bantering about crazy ideas in odd-colored pants, paired with nice shoes. He constantly wears a pocket square.
