Five years ago, I invited a small group of business leaders from Western MA to join me at the Hofbrauhaus to learn more about the budding entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Pioneer Valley. Since then, we have seen a groundswell of momentum throughout the region and increased enthusiasm in support of entrepreneurship. It has been amazing to see the growth of academic initiatives, spaces for entrepreneurs to launch, mentor programs and investors actively involved in making Western MA the welcoming environment for entrepreneurs.
Please join me for the fifth annual State of Entrepreneurship in the Valley gathering. Take the opportunity to celebrate achievements and new initiatives that are underway to support entrepreneurs, learn more about future initiatives that will sustain and build on the momentum of the past five years and how you can get involved. Highlights include:
New Fund developments to expand investment in entrepreneurs in the Valley
Academic initiatives and resources
The next wave of Accelerator Initiatives
New ways to engage in the entrepreneurship movement in Western MA
Entrepreneurs will ensure Western MA continues its long history of innovation! Be a part of the story.
