He/Him
Founder

I am a graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute with bachelor’s degrees in both Robotics Engineering and Electrical & Computer Engineering. I am a lifelong native of central MA growing up in Sutton, MA and attending high school and college in Worcester. Since the age of 5, I was involved in robotics clubs and competitions outside of school.

During my senior year of college in 2021, I started a company called True Robotics with the mission of providing hands-on, project based STEM experience for students in the classroom. After completing 4 months of market research as part of the I-Corps program at WPI/MIT my team and I launched our classroom robotics programs. Since launch in the beginning of 2023, we have served thousands of students and hundreds of educators extending our primary school robotics education program to schools across the United States.

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!
