MassChallenge Announces the 2024 U.S. Early Stage Cohort  

MassChallenge has invited 128 innovative startups joining our community this summer as part of the 2024 U.S. Early Stage Program. These startups were selected from over 1300 applications, making this a highly competitive process that highlights the exceptional quality and diversity of emerging talent in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

The selection process involved two rigorous rounds of evaluation, with contributions from MassChallenge’s dedicated community of experienced judges. Their commitment and expertise were crucial in identifying the most promising startups to support. 

The U.S. Early Stage cohort showcases a range of startups, from pre-revenue companies to those with millions in lifetime revenue, underscoring the breadth and impact of the solutions these startups are undertaking. Meet the cohort here.
