MBI’s mentorship programs are open to all Massachusetts-based life science startup companies


Thanks to a Growth Accelerator Fund Competition (GAFC) award in 2023 from the Federal Small Business Administration (SBA), MBI and The Venture Forum were able build our Spark mentorship program. With a goal of supporting early-stage entrepreneurs developing breakthrough science and technologies, the free, 8-week long Spark program will pair aspiring entrepreneurs in need of guidance with mentors who are ready to dive in and catalyze the development of startup companies.
