New York City is the financial capital of the world and when you think Los Angeles, you can practically see the Hollywood sign in your head. What those cities are to money and movies, respectively, Massachusetts is to healthcare and innovation.
As a hotbed of higher education on the cutting-edge of medical research, Massachusetts is already home to many brilliant minds, but it’s also the obvious choice for medical and healthcare industry startups from other corners of the world looking to plant their flag.
With its heralded universities and hospitals, Boston has established itself as the powerhouse in the digital health space, with The Fenway increasingly at the center of the action. The sheer volume of potentially world-changing solutions and ideas—from telehealth to data management—is astounding. And with the rise of startup-friendly, health-centric accelerators like PULSE@MassChallenge (who just opened their new facility at Hatch Fenway), there’s no sign of things slowing down.
And we’re not just talking Boston here, folks—the whole Commonwealth’s got a seat at the table. While the Greater Boston area is certainly the focal point of entrepreneurship, from Bay State in Springfield (which has its own innovation center, TechSpring) to UMass Medical in Worcester, the rest of Massachusetts is gaining ground.
And innovators worldwide have taken notice.
These are the five core attributes that make Massachusetts so attractive to tech startups in the healthcare and medical fields.
Sold on getting your healthcare startup off the ground in the Bay State? Well, PULSE, the most startup-friendly digital health lab on earth, can help you make it happen.
Apply to participate in MassChallenge, a Boston-based accelerator that has helped fledgling companies from around the world raise more than $1.8 billion in funding, but hurry: Applications close March 28th.
To learn more about PULSE, visit their website, and keep an eye out for their events series in this month and throughout the year.
