Founder

As the co-founder and technology partner at Dovetail, my primary focus is to make digital transformation accessible to entrepreneurs. We started Dovetail because we understand the gaps that exist when starting or expanding a company. We help businesses experiencing transformational change to bridge the gaps in operations and technology, allowing entrepreneurs to focus on what’s important: the business. Whether you’re a startup or an expanding business, finding a capable partner during times when you’re already spread thin can seem like an impossible task. Dovetail exists to ease the stress and act as a trusted partner to your business, regardless of your technical needs.

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!
