MassNextGen Info Session
Entrepreneur Hour: Please join us to learn how the MLSC supports diverse entrepreneurs and early-stage life science companies through MassNextGen and other initiatives.
The new iteration of MassNextGen will increase funding to $100,000 per awardee, aim to double the cohort size to 10 entrepreneurs, and expand entrepreneurs’ access and network to raise further funding by providing year-round networking sessions with the venture capital community. The MLSC and its sponsors will also hold a “pitch” event for awardees to highlight their company to sponsors, awardees, and representatives of venture capital firms.
The MLSC and its sponsors are launching the next five years of MassNextGen to support all entrepreneurs that identify as: Female; Black, African American, or Afro Caribbean; Hispanic, Hispanic American, or Latinx/Latin; Indigenous, Native American, or First Nation; Asian American, Pacific Islander, or Native Hawaiian; Transgender, Queer/Non Binary, Nonconforming/Agender; Living with apparent or non-apparent disability, or Neurodiverse; and Veteran and others.
A special thank you to our Anchor Platinum Sponsor, Takeda, and our Change Sponsors Berkshire Innovation Center, Bristol Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, M2D2, Mansfield Bio-Incubator, Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives (MBI), Mintz, and North Shore InnoVentures.
