As MassChallenge is a not-for-profit organization, focused on supporting early-stage startups, the accelerator program often serves as a “validator” or “first step” for other entrepreneurship programs, accelerators & incubators. That is why MassChallenge works collaboratively with other such programs & organisations, with the goal of building a connected community of entrepreneurial support.
