The 2021 MassChallenge U.S. Showcase and Awards is a celebration of creativity and innovation coming from the minds of entrepreneurs building game-changing businesses that will impact the way we live, work, and play.
Each year, MassChallenge supports hundreds of startups tackling the most massive challenges of our time - from climate change to Alzheimer’s to college access and affordability. All for no-cost to the entrepreneurs and for zero equity. In its 12th year, the 2021 MassChallenge U.S Showcase and Awards will celebrate more than 200 startups from our U.S programs; award millions non-equity cash prizes; and virtually convene the global innovation community. The streaming event includes industry-based pitch sessions, opportunities to schedule meetings with the founders, and an hour-long production with celebrity keynote speakers to celebrate the accomplishments of the entrepreneurs from this year’s early stage programs.
