Focus: MassChallenge is the largest-ever startup accelerator and competition, and the first to support high-impact, early-stage entrepreneurs with no strings attached. MassChallenge uses a competition format to select startups for the accelerator program. Anyone can enter MassChallenge, with any startup, in any industry, from anywhere in the world.
The mission of MassChallenge Israel - MassChallenge’s first Global Hub - is to enable top-tier early-stage Israeli startups to access global markets by connecting them with the very best people and organizations in the Boston entrepreneurial ecosystem and global markets.
With the help of Israel’s innovative leaders who serve as volunteer judges, MassChallenge Israel identifies the highest-potential startups in Israel to participate in the accelerator in Boston.
These startups (“finalists”) gain new sales channels, investors, mentors, and growth that wouldn’t be feasible otherwise, thus creating a US-based beachhead that serves them once they return to Israel.
MassChallenge Israel finalists receive financial and logistical support during the 4-month accelerator period.
