With our mission to help all entrepreneurs win, MassChallenge successfully grew it’s reach to the communities of South Boston including Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan and got the attention of 13 stellar companies. These companies were nominated from key community leaders and vetted by experts at The Boston Foundation to partake in this intensive program.
Each entrepreneur brought their attention and attendance to the entire series which made us realise the amount of impact we had.
