The Mapping Project


MassChallenge is a start-up accelerator and mentorship program organized into an NGO. MassChallenge was established in 2009 in Boston, and the organization now has offices in Rhode Island and Texas, as well as in Mexico, Switzerland, and Israel. The Boston, MA location includes MassChallenge's main program, which focuses on early-stage US startups, as well as their HealthTech and FinTech programs. MassChallenge begins with a competitive application process, from which winners are selected and enrolled in a four-month mentorship program. This mentorship program includes opportunities for networking with investors and the ability to compete for funds. MassChallenge provides this full list of the start-ups they have graduated through their program.

The MassChallenge Israel office, located at Ki'ach 5 Jerusalem, 93542, plans to seek out agribusiness and agribusiness-adjacent startups for funding in 2022, through the "Better Plate Track." MassChallenge is carrying out this new agribusiness initiative in partnership with the Modern Agriculture Foundation. The prize for completing the program includes a business trip to Boston.
