I first came across MassChallenge a few years ago, when I was attending Startup Leadership Program and many of the companies were or had applied to the program. And when I joined Techstars, I learned that alumni like Libboo, Evertrue, and Sidetour were also MassChallenge alumni.
The more I learned about MassChallenge from talking to Justin Normand and friend Chris Howard, the more I learned how pro entrepreneur they are. Winners of MassChallenge receive world-class mentorship, free office space, training and access to a global network. And companies with the highest potential at the end can be awarded up to £50k per team.
MassChallenge has been instrumental in the Boston ecosystem. And now, I'm ecstatic that they've chosen UK as their first international hub.
