We recently learned that were chosen as a 2018 MassChallenge finalist and will participate in the 2018 MassChallenge accelerator, a prestigious and influential accelerator here in Boston, starting on June 19th!
We were selected from more than 1,600 promising startup applications across industries and regions around the world. As part of the 2018 cohort, Hypnap will have unrivaled access to top corporate partners, expert mentorship, tailored curriculum, scholarship opportunities, and more than 26,000 square-feet of co-working space in the Innovation and Design Building – all at zero cost and for zero equity. At the culmination of the four-month program, Hypnap will also have a chance to compete for shares of $1.5M in cash prizes at the MassChallenge Awards on Oct. 17.
MassChallenge is a global network of zero-equity startup accelerators. Headquartered in the United States with locations in Boston, Israel, Mexico, Rhode Island, Switzerland, Texas, and the UK, MassChallenge is committed to strengthening the global innovation ecosystem by supporting high-potential early stage startups across all industries, from anywhere in the world. To date, more than 1,500 MassChallenge alumni have raised more than $3 billion in funding, generated over $2 billion in revenue, and created over 80,000 total jobs.
A couple of successful Boston Based startups who’ve participated in MassChallenge include Ministry of Supply, a company that designs business attire using proprietary NASA technology that regulates temperature to prevent sweat, and Lovin Spoonfuls Inc., a company that rescues and distributes perishable prepared and unserved foods that would otherwise be thrown out, to shelters, local crisis centers, and other social assistance organizations.
This is an amazing opportunity and we’re very excited! We look forward to taking advantage of all the resources that MassChallenge can provide. We can’t wait to meet and be inspired by the other startups participating in the accelerator!
This milestone will get us one step closer to making our dream of launching TruRest, and getting it into the hands of people who can benefit from it, a reality!
