Contrary to popular belief, the "Mass" in MassChallenge does not stand for "Massachusetts." In fact, a fun secret about MassChallenge is that it actually stands for "massive!" How massive? The map doesn't lie:
We're excited that startups from over 50 countries around the world applied to the MassChallenge accelerator this year. From the USA to Brazil, and from Russia to Ghana, we're proud to be a resource for entrepreneurs all over the globe.
This awesome increase in number in reach was no small effort, and we couldn't have done it without some amazing partners. Several different organizations and institutions promoted and helped to refer top startups to our program. They are, in no particular order:
Along with all of these awesome promotional partners, we also recieved help from each of our 489 alumni startup companies. We're incredibly honored to be a part of such an inspired and collaborative community. With referrals from such great partners, the 2014 crew of finalist startups are sure to make a huge impact!
