Congratulations Newton, Massachusetts! Recently, Newton was awarded a $150,000 grant for the creation of the Newton Innovation Center, which provides space and supports the formation and growth of local start-up companies. The grant was part of the CommunityWINS program, which is run by The U.S. Conference of Mayors and Wells Fargo. The Newton Innovation Center opened in 2016, as a collaboration between MassChallenge, the Cambridge Innovation Center, and the City of Newton. Members of the Newton Innovation Center will have access to MassChallenge’s mentor network and extensive programming opportunities.
At the check presentation on September 19, 2016, Mayor Setti Warren and MassChallenge founder, John Harthorne, expounded on the benefits of fostering innovation in the greater Boston area. With easy access to downtown Boston and I-90, Newton is a prime location for startups to grow and take advantage of resources provided at the Newton Innovation Center. Accelerator programs, like MassChallenge, provide startups with resources, such as mentoring, networking, and office space. These programs also foster growth and provide job and internship opportunities to the surrounding community.
