A startup incubator is more than a desk or a lab bench. We’re about the journey and the discovery, turning the imagined into reality.
We understand the needs of our members, connect them across industries, and launch them into the markets ready to engage.
Our startup incubator provides our members with the time and tools to bring their ideas to market.
Accelerating the growth of innovative startups in the cleantech and biotech sectors (two of the strongest technology clusters in Massachusetts).
Supporting the economic development on the North Shore by successfully launching new companies and creating high-quality, sustainable jobs.
Discovery is innovation only if you can sell it, people will buy lots of it, and someone makes money
The startup journey isn’t a straight line. Our startup incubator program, the North Star, helps you navigate as you progress. It tracks your progress across all facets of company formation and growth, from market to technology to funding and all points in-between. Our goal is to have you graduate ready to be on your own, in your own space, with all necessary resources in place for growth.
The North Star helps you innovate faster and climb higher.
