To create a stronger ecosystem in Massachusetts, I propose...

Make mentoring a priority throughout the Commonwealth

Following the lead of the MIT VMS and Valley Venture Mentors in Springfield, support mentoring organizations that can be the catalyst for startup communities throughout the Commnwealth. These organizations are lean and leverage the support of seasoned entrepreneurs to propel new entrepreneurs to success. If done correctly, a mentoring organization becomes the "tip of the spear" that creates an entrepreneurial ecosystem that merges with others across the Commonwealth.
