MassChallenge is Coming to SwitzerlandMassChallenge

Our friends over at MassChallenge have just announced the latest European location to be added to their growing global presence will be Switzerland!

MassChallenge has its roots in Boston Massachusetts, where it operates the World’s largest accelerator programme, but in recent times they have begun to branch out to other promising locations, including their well publicised and highly successful move into London in the second half of 2015.

MassChallenge has a rather interesting approach to delivering accelerator programmes, requiring no equity from its startups but still providing free resources and opportunities to help ambitious, high-growth potential startups to expedite their expansion.
