Startup Boston’s Dealflow Mixer

March 13 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


Black founders raised 0.13% of all capital allocated to U.S. startups in Q3 of 2023, according to Crunchbase. That’s about $39.7 million out of $29.9 billion.

PitchBook Data’s US VC Female Founders Dashboard (2024), which tracks founders’ gender but not race, found that female founders received 2.1% of all venture capital invested since the beginning of the year.


Startup Boston welcomes founders from historically underrepresented backgrounds* and investors eager to change those investment statistics to our first Dealflow Mixer of 2024. At this event, founders seeking seed funding and investors seeking investments will get several hand-picked matches to sit down and explore if there is alignment between startup and investor.


Applications to attend are open until Wednesday, February 28th. The location of this event will be revealed after you complete registration.


​*Our definition of “historically underrepresented backgrounds” includes BIPOC, female, female-identifying, LGBTQ+ identifying, non-college educated, and beyond. If you are unsure if you qualify, apply anyways!

To Be Determined
MA United States + Google Map

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!
