Collaboration for Innovation 


Established in 2008, North Shore InnoVentures® is a nonprofit technology business incubator committed to:

  • Accelerating the growth of innovative startups in the cleantech and biotech sectors (two of the strongest technology clusters in Massachusetts) and
  • Supporting the economic development on the North Shore by successfully launching new companies and creating high-quality, sustainable jobs.

NSIV’s collaborative business model allows us to provide promising young companies office space, shared laboratories and equipment, sponsored professional services, successful entrepreneur mentors, and investor advisers. Together we help our member companies refine their business strategies, conserve capital, build strong teams, and achieve development and funding milestones.

NSIV is supported in part by state and federal grants, as well as corporate sponsors, which help subsidize the facilities and services we offer.
