Creating Innovation Ecosystems

Community Partners are made up of external organizations that share the same mission as MassChallange of pushing the status quo, and driving bold, inclusive innovation. MassChallenge works with these organizations in variety of ways and are always seeking to explore new opportunities.

Government & Ecosystem Partners

MassChallenge’s mission and model is designed to drive increased connectivity and density across all key innovation stakeholders: Government (federal, state, and municipal), Corporations, Academia, Media, Venture Capitalists, and Entrepreneurs. Connectivity and density attracts and support startups who seek access to resources (talent, expertise, capital, customers) in order to learn and grow quickly.
