Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton sponsored organization and client, TechSandBox, announced its partnership with MassDevelopment and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative (“MassTech”) in the launch of a new program for military veterans. The Military Veteran Entrepreneurs in Technology program (“VET”) is for veterans who are starting and growing new ventures in innovation-focused sectors and will provide support via mentoring, networking, and advising, among other services.
Through its involvement with VET, TechSandBox will supply veterans with the necessary resources to create and foster successful startups. Specifically, TechSandBox will document the needs of the veterans, deliver programming for entrepreneurial development, and provide a network of other entrepreneurs in which the veterans can interact.
The VET will serve veterans in the MetroWest region and the Commonwealth. The program will begin with a pilot phase, which will last for 18 months. MassDevelopment and MassTech provided a combined grant of $53,101 for the pilot program. For more information about the program, view TechSandBox’s website.
TechSandBox is a technology incubator for innovation-driven companies. Its mission is to accelerate the success of science and technology entrepreneurs. MBBP is proud of its client’s community-focused approach and the commitment to veterans through this new program.
