Founders are everywhere, but resources aren’t.

That’s a shame, because the next big idea could come from anywhere.

The Massachusetts Founder Network aims to bridge the gap, giving startup founders equitable access to resources that will help their companies grow.

We support MA founders no matter where they’re located in Massachusetts, their company’s stage, or their business sector. All startup founders are welcome to find resources and community at MFN while creating connections, expanding their networks, and learning from one another.

About MFN

The Massachusetts Founders Network helps connect startup founders across the state with acceleration resources, including funding. MFN offers valuable networking, resources, mentorship, and community for startup founders in Massachusetts.

MFN is produced by Lever, a startup accelerator based in North Adams. Our work is supported by funding from and collaboration with the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, based in Westborough.

At Lever, we’ve been advising and connecting with entrepreneurs for years, and we’re using that knowledge and network to launch something new. We’re building MFN with the help of an advisory board of successful founders and ecosystem leaders throughout the state.

We plan to preview the Massachusetts Founders Network in summer 2023, and to launch this fall. Sign up for our newsletter to get alerts about our launch, new features, and MFN events!
