A Skilled Venture Team

with the 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. helpful referrals, individual strategy meetings over coffee, etc.).

Jason Freeman

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.
