The mission of MassVentures is to support the innovation economy and the economic growth initiatives of the Commonwealth by transferring research and early stage innovations to viable businesses and jobs


Much more than a Venture Capital Firm

We fill a critical gap in the state’s innovation ecosystem, providing venture capital, grants, and business advice to founders who often lack access to this support. We establish long-term relationships with these founders, aiding them on their journey from startup to growth company. Our investment and grant companies have leveraged over $3 billion in follow-on capital in the last 5 years and employ approximately 10,000 workers in Massachusetts. 

MV Capital: our deep tech venture funds, grant programs and revenue-based loans.

MV Accelerate: our technical assistance offerings, such as MassVX and the Massachusetts Association of Technology Transfer Offices (MATTO).


Why Deep Tech?

Deep tech has vast potential to fuel Massachusetts' innovation economy. Deep tech startups innovate scientific and engineering breakthroughs that address big societal challenges, often creating new markets or disrupting existing ones.

The deep tech sector includes, but is not limited to, advanced manufacturing, advanced materials, artificial intelligence, robotics, photonics, electronics, quantum computing, cleantech, medical devices, biotechnology, IoT, health security, and cyber security.

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


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.).

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.
