Prepare to be inspired by a range of ideas by BU students and alumni that tackle pressing issues such as mitigating extreme weather effects, promoting climate justice, and managing sea level rise. The highlight of the evening will be the announcement of winners, who will share a $15,000 prize, the largest prize pool of any previous Changemaker Challenge.
In addition to celebrating their achievements, the event offers an excellent opportunity for networking with experts in sustainability and innovation. Attendees will get a glimpse of how these ideas have evolved with expert feedback and coaching, highlighting a journey of growth and learning. It’s more than just a competition; it’s a gathering of diverse thoughts and backgrounds from all 17 BU schools and colleges, all coming together with a shared vision of building a brighter, more resilient Boston. Join us at Boston University for an evening of innovation, impact, and community.
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.
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.
