MassVentures is the Commonwealth's strategic venture capital team. We find, fund, and foster early stage deep tech that fuels economic growth across the Commonwealth.

Deep tech is at the core of the Commonwealth's innovation ecosystem. STEM-based startups represent substantial scientific advances and high-tech engineering innovation that address big societal challenges - often creating new markets or disrupting existing ones.

The deep tech sector includes advanced manufacturing, advanced materials, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, blockchain, robotics, photonics, electronics, quantum computing, and other emerging technologies.

It's a sector that is often overlooked and typically underinvested at the seed stage...but it's brimming with opportunity.

Deep Tech is Where We Live

Fuel your growth




We exist to fuel early stage innovation and investment - our mandate is to find and develop opportunity in places others don't tend to look. Our mission supports the broad perspective, deep inquiry, and extended commitment required to move from opportunity to economic impact



We know the people you need to know to bring deep tech to market. Scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, business partners, government - we have spent our careers building productive relationships across the innovation ecosystem.



You don't get to be one of the world's longest-running venture funds without making smart decisions. For over 40 years, we have been fueling the Commonwealth's innovation economy, reinvesting our investment profits as a successful evergreen fund to drive business and job growth.

“MassVentures is building a collaborative ecosystem of entrepreneurs in Boston and beyond. Each of our success is made more likely with the success of others in our community. Armored Things is proud to be a part of this group!”
