Last year, MassChallenge brought its mission to help all entrepreneurs win to South Boston, Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan with an intensive mini-accelerator. Thirteen companies participated in an immersive startup bootcamp with curriculum catered to their individual needs, industry mentors, and access to 24/7 office space. The bootcamp cumulated with a pitch competition where Minus the Moo and BeautyLynk ultimately received two fast-track spots into Round 2 of judging for the 2016 MassChallenge Boston accelerator program.
This year, MassChallenge has partnered with the E.M. Kauffman Foundation to expand the startup bootcamp and provide entrepreneurs and innovators from the Greater Boston Region. This mini-accelerator will once again be dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds.
The startup bootcamp will run over the months of March and April and is open to early-stage, high-impact and high-potential underrepresented entrepreneurs and innovators (Women, minorities, veterans, immigrants, etc…) from the Greater Boston region.
Applications are due on March 1 — Apply here to take part in this opportunity!
