MassChallenge is the most startup-friendly accelerator on the planet. No equity and not-for-profit, we are obsessed with helping entrepreneurs from all backgrounds, industries, and regions around the world. We also reward the highest-impact startups through a competition to win a portion of several million dollars in equity-free cash awards. Through our global network of accelerators in Boston, Israel, Mexico, Switzerland, Texas, and the UK; and unrivaled access to our corporate partners, we can have a massive impact – driving growth and creating value the world over. To date, 1,211 MassChallenge alumni have raised over $2 billion in funding, generated approximately $900 million in revenue, and created over 65,000 total jobs.

In its eighth year, MassChallenge Boston has accelerated over 1,000 startups, including Ginkgo Bioworks, the first MassChallenge alum valued at over $1 billion. Since 2010, the program’s alumni have gone on to create widespread impact across industries and regions around the world. To further support the most-promising startups at an early stage, MassChallenge is introducing program tracks aimed at deepening startup and corporate engagement in both the food & beverage and social impact spaces, where they’ve seen an uptick in activity.
In addition to connecting entrepreneurs to a community of support, scholarship opportunities, and resources, MassChallenge Boston also provides the working space necessary to ideate, collaborate, and accelerate. Through generous support from Jamestown, the 128-startup cohort will spend the summer working from The Innovation and Design Building, the entrepreneurial center of Boston’s Seaport District. Startups working to build physical products will also have access to the 5,000 square foot MADE@MassChallenge R&D lab, which provides the equipment and support needed to scale solutions.
