Breaking Barriers: Empowering Massachusetts Startup Founders

January 30 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


There are a plethora of resources and funding opportunities for founders in metro Boston, but what about other cities and towns across the Commonwealth? And what about resources for founders of color and other underserved communities?


To launch our new monthly webinar series, join the Innovation Studio and Massachusetts Founders Network with Daniel Enríquez Vidaña, where we will learn what Daniel does to help connect founders of all backgrounds and geographies across Massachusetts. Daniel will recommend strategies for making connections, tapping resources, and finding supportive investors!

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 come from, their company’s stage, or their business sector. We want to democratize access to the resources that will help them accelerate—and excel. All 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 is a central hub for all things startups, fostering innovation and collaboration across the state. 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.


We’ve been advising and connecting with entrepreneurs for years, and we’re using that knowledge and network to launch something new, with the help of an advisory board of successful founders and major players in the startup ecosystem. 

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