VVM accelerates innovation by connecting startups to the resources and people they need to succeed.
Entrepreneurs typically lack the community, education and access to advisors that they require to transition their business from idea to implementation.
VVM creates programs that address these needs. To date, we have graduated over 50 startups from our flagship program, Mentorship, representing a diverse range of industries from food to tech. In January 2015, we will welcome 30 companies into our inaugural Accelerator program, which will provide companies training, office space and equity free grants to finance the early stages of their growth.
We are a community driven organization: without the support of our mentors and sponsors, we could not help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to empowering, serving and continue to build the community of entrepreneurs in Western Massachusetts. But, that isn’t possible without resources.
Please help us continue this important work and invest in the future of an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Western Massachusetts.
