Massachusetts Life Sciences Center Board approves first round of Milestone Achievement Program (MAP) grants

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) announced the awarding of over $2 million in Milestone Achievement Program (MAP) grants to twelve early-stage life sciences companies.  This is the first round of grants awarded under the newly established MAP program.

The Milestone Achievement Program (MAP) was launched in late 2014 with several goals including filling a gap in the funding environment and empowering early-stage life sciences companies to attract additional outside funding.  The program awards grants between $50,000 and $200,000 to Massachusetts companies in order to perform and complete essential value-creating milestones.
