A venture capital consultant, consummate networker, and facilitator, John has been active in the field for more than 50 years. During this time, emerging companies have been assisted in raising capital, their business structures have been formulated, their growth has been facilitated, and significant connections to people and resources have been made in the life cycle of their businesses. The industries they have served and the lives of thousands of employees have been materially impacted by many of these companies, with some of them becoming Harvard Business School case studies.
In addition to the numerous companies that have been assisted, civic activities have been actively engaged in by John Harrington for more than 50 years. Participation on school boards, hospital boards, numerous youth sports boards, library search committees, and foundation boards, such as the Winchester Hospital Foundation and the Joslin Diabetes Foundation, has been undertaken.
