Hiring and supporting a data science team for omics initiatives isn’t easy for biotechs, and working with traditional bioinformatic CROs can be a headache (one expert, email communication, hourly billing). I started Dovetail Biopartners to alleviate these pain points by tackling every omics data problem with a custom solution, as a team, and with streamlined collaboration through our Slack and in-house Client Portal. We only work on flat rate models, never hourly, so our data scientists and cloud engineers can stay focused on crafting the best solutions to each client’s specific problem. We are more than just a service provider, but a strategic partner for tailored omics data analytics and management solutions.
I am very much looking forward to learning from fellow founders on how to be a good leader and mentor, the pros and cons of outside funding vs bootstrapping, and maybe teaching others a bit about the world of data science.

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!
