If you ask any of the start-ups at the Venture Development Center to describe in one word the culture of our incubator in Boston, they’ll say “focused”.
Everyone is focused on launching, and keeping costs to a minimum.
The start-up founders will also mention the stunning plug-and-play office, lab and meeting workspace, designed by award winning Sasaki for start-ups. The VDC offers a range of options, from cowork space to full lab and office suites. All options feature the savings of no long-term commitment, no full-time admin staffing costs and no need to build out infrastructure or buy expensive furnishings or equipment – just professional ready-to-use workspace available on a month to month basis.
But what the start-ups really value most is our day to day, one to one business mentoring. It keeps everyone focused. What really accelerates time to investment and market when you are starting up is learning from those who have done it before. Our experienced team includes Dan Phillips, our Entrepreneur in Residence, a 25 year veteran of venture capital backed start-up companies.
In addition to business mentoring, we’ll search, screen, interview and select intern finalists for you to choose from based upon your precise intern requirements. Fielding a programming or marketing team of interns is a great way to leverage your resources.
If you are focused on launching a new biotech or high tech initiative, please come visit! We are located on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Boston, on the Red Line. Benefit from visibility, business coaching, screened interns, access to a network of connections, and vetted professional resources.
