Xconomist Noubar Afeyan, co-founder and CEO of Flagship Ventures in
Cambridge, MA, was one of those awarded the Ellis Island Medal of
Honor by the National Ethnic Coalition (NECO) over the weekend. Afeyan
received the award in recognition of "his achievements not only as a
successful technologist and entrepreneur, but also as a humanitarian
who has had a positive impact on his local community and in his ethnic
home country of Armenia," according to a NECO press release.

Erik Mellgren is a Swedish journalist who worked for Xconomy Boston in
