Directory of Massachusetts Investor Organizations

Dear MFN members, here is a non-comprehensive list of investment groups that fund startups. We’ve checked all of their websites and believe that most are actively investing. We’ve indicated priority stages and business sectors whenever possible.

If you are looking for prospective investors, we recommend that you use this directory to identify groups that invest in companies like yours and then go to their sites to make sure they’re a good fit. Note that many larger investment groups do not invest in early-stage companies (pre-seed, seed), instead making larger investments in later stage or “growth” stage companies.

The Capital Network, now part of The Entrepreneur Forum in Boston, has also developed a list of investment groups that can be found here.

Learn more about strategies for engaging investors here and here.
