About the Massachusetts High Technology Council

About the Council

The Massachusetts High Technology Council, Inc. is an organization of CEOs and senior executives representing technology companies, professional services firms, and research institutions who are dedicated to creating and sustaining conditions that support investment, job growth, and improved quality of life in Massachusetts. Our members are growth-oriented, knowledge-intensive employers and institutions that develop, deliver, and depend on technology and scientific products, services, and innovations to advance their organizational objectives—a definition which covers just about all business enterprises in Massachusetts today.

The Council advocates for the innovation economy in Massachusetts by providing members with opportunities to connect with peers, and by facilitating cooperative relationships and results-focused strategies among senior leaders from industry, finance, academia, and government.

Our mission is simple: to help make Massachusetts the world’s most attractive place to live and work, and in which to create, operate, and grow businesses within the innovation ecosystem.

Founded in 1977, the Council has consistently led the development and implementation of strategies that shape the most important state, local, and federal policy issues facing technology-focused organizations. The Council’s impact-focused model ensures we are focused on policy issues that are most critical to CEOs and senior executives.
