Datto is an industry-leading company delivering advanced backup and disaster recovery solutions to thousands of the world’s fastest growing companies. McChord started the business in his basement in 2007. After transforming the company into one of Inc. 500’s fastest-growing back-up and security companies, McChord donated $50 million to his alma mater, Rochester Institute of Technology, to pursue programs in entrepreneurship and cybersecurity.

“The Headliner event is always one of our most well-attended events,” said Ray Isaac, president of the Small Business Council of Rochester. “We’re expecting that Austin’s success story and his ties to Rochester will be a huge draw for the Rochester business community. While Austin will offer formal remarks about his strategies for success, we will also be opening it up to an interactive discussion with event attendees.”
