Beyond Mentoring: Science + Business
If you're an academic founder ready to spin out your research, or a startup in our portfolio seeking business guidance, MassVX can help. The statewide program curates talent matches between academic innovators and business development experts to expedite the translation of research to the market. It fills a gap for most academic innovators who have not yet developed a vetted business network.
We draw from our deep network of business development experts--or entrepreneurial champions, as we like to call them-- to match academic founders with the entrepreneurial champion best suited to address their unique needs or challenges. Our network of vetted entrepreneurial champions includes CEOs, chairpersons, venture capital advisory board members, and other professionals.
