Catalyze a startup renaissance
MassChallenge is the largest-ever startup accelerator, and the first to support high-impact, early-stage entrepreneurs with no strings attached. Over $1 million in cash prizes is awarded to winning startups, with zero equity taken. Additional benefits for startups include world-class mentorship and training, free office space in a 27,000-sq.ft. (2500 m2) high-rise building with a gorgeous 14th-floor view of the Boston Harbor, access to funding, legal advice, media and over $15 million of in-kind support.
For the 2013 accelerator program, MassChallenge selected 128 winning startups out of ~1,200 applicant companies from 40 countries and 30 states.
Blueseed and MassChallenge will be working together to enable international startups to continue their growth in the U.S. after they graduate from MassChallenge. Before launch, Blueseed will be forwarding select startups to MassChallenge for the 2014 cohort and will draw from the MassChallenge experience with managing the largest-scale startup incubator in the U.S.
