StartUp Worcester is an initiative of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, The Venture Forum, and Worcester CleanTech Incubator to launch and to provide support as well as space for the region’s young entrepreneurs.
The initiative helps to incubate new businesses and to retain the bright young graduates of the area’s college and universities. StartUp Worcester encourages them to grow their business here – where they have access to everything they need to succeed.
Each year, StartUp Worcester awards 12, full year memberships to both the Chamber, The Venture Forum, and WCTI.
There is no charge for applications or winners. Each StartUp Worcester membership awarded is valued at over $1,500 (Chamber, WCTI shared office and The Venture Forum memberships), but the access to resources, mentors, network and publicity are invaluable to help companies get to the next level.
