MassChallenge Conference Networking Tips

For those who are not familiar with MassChallenge, it’s an accelarator program for start-ups.  To answer a FAQ, “No” the word Mass in MassChallenge does not stand for Massachusetts.  It’s stands for Massive, big, huge, etc.  They get over 1000 applicants each year and select a little over 100 to participant in their program.  What do they get?  They get the opportunity to be mentoring, networking and a shot at $50-$100K in cash prizes (a total of $1M in cash is given away and $9M of inkind prizes).

Before the 2012 MassChallenge Awards began I had a chance to catch up with a few of the start-ups.  I asked them various questions like, “What stood out most about the program? and what sparked the idea for your start-up?

I have a deep desire to help spread entrepreneurial thinking as the solutions to many of our problems today. I am a project kind of guy who loves to get things started. When I'm not in search of contract work (projects) that I can do during the nights and weekends I can be found working as a mild mannered Digital Content Manager for Babson Executive Education.
