MHA Partners with MassChallenge to Support CT Startups

As part of its recent efforts to support start-up businesses in the greater Hartford region and beyond, the MetroHartford Alliance (MHA) is partnering with MassChallenge, one of the nation’s leading accelerator programs. MHA is encouraging Connecticut startups to apply to MassChallenge’s global accelerator program. Since 2010, MassChallenge has helped start-ups raise over $700 million for the over 600 companies that participated with 90% of them still active or have been acquired.

MHA is looking forward to MassChallenge marketing our region and its entrepreneur support services to their clients and to MassChallenge further assisting us in developing programs to drive entrepreneurial growth in CT.
