the RIGHT EXPERIENCE, PASSION and CAPITAL to FUEL YOUR SUCCESS.
The MassVentures team believes their job is to serve entrepreneurs. I've heard many times an investor say the words "let me know how I can help," but MassVentures shows me their team's commitment to helping entrepreneurs through actions (i.e. hosting educational events, helpful referrals, individual strategy meetings over coffee, etc.).
Founder and CEO, Prolific Works
The value for me is really our conversations. I've found MassVentures to offer solid guidance and a genuine interest in helping the company. I often call you first while I'm still formulating my thoughts because I know you won't judge me based on not appearing decisive, and know that you will be supportive.
