A Community of Innovators

The MassChallenge model is community-driven to build intentional on-ramps and unparalleled access to resources and opportunities for ALL founders, whether they fit or break the mold. Our community is defined by the stakeholders – Founders, Experts, Investors, Donors, and strategic Partners – who engage with MassChallenge and share in our mission to equip bold entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to disrupt the status quo to create sustainable change.
