by Lynnette Nolan | Sep 19, 2011

Carbonite Founder and CEO David Friend has been in the technology startup scene for more than 25 years. In fact, it's safe to say that startup culture runs through David's veins, and Carbonite's as well.

But did you know David is also an avid runner?

Startup enthusiasts and runners in Boston are invited to join David Friend and MassChallenge tonight for the MassChallenge Run, Eat, Drink & Pitch Group 5k fun run/walk. Runners and walkers will depart from the MassChallenge offices at Fan Pier at 7:00 p.m. After the run, David and other local entrepreneurs will deliver 60-second pitches about their startups.

There will be food and drink, and the event is free. For more information and registration, visit the MassChallenge/RunMenu event page.

MassChallenge is a non-profit organization that connects early stage entrepreneurs to the resources they need to launch high-growth, high-impact businesses immediately. Here's a peek at last month's event so you can see what the night will entail.

See you there!
