The Seed Fund

Program Overview

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center Seed Fund mission is to support the development of innovative, promising life sciences start-ups in targeted geographies across Massachusetts. By leveraging the breadth of a strong life sciences ecosystem across Massachusetts, we intend to identify promising opportunities for future investment.

We will initially focus on Lowell, Worcester, the Pioneer Valley, and the Berkshires. We are investing up to $250,000 convertible notes for novel innovations in all life sciences sectors, including;

  • Diagnostics
  • Digital health/Bioinformatics
  • Medical devices
  • MedTech
  • Therapeutics

Opportunities will be evaluated on a rolling basis. Up to $1 million is available for the first year of the fund. We encourage early-stage life science companies, who have yet to raise their first priced round, to apply for this program.

To begin the application process, please submit an application via SmartSimple.
