Building on the success of its inaugural UK accelerator program in 2015, MassChallenge continues to engage the entrepreneurial sector in the UK looking for “high impact” and “high potential” early-stage companies.
Overall, MassChallenge’s 835 global alumni have raised $1.1 billion, have generated $520 million, and have created over 6,500 jobs.
The Rumi Foundation continues to strengthen its support of MassChallenge with its Founder, Lord Verjee, sitting on the Global Advisory Board and the Foundation was pleased to welcome Former Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick to a dinner hosted for MassChallenge in March 2016.
Governor Patrick has been a key champion of MassChallenge since its inception in Boston in 2009 and he spoke to some of the young entrepreneurs at the dinner about opportunities they have to make a real impact in the world.
