Boston Startup Ecosystem

Boston’s advanced robotics and manufacturing industries help cement its place as one of the world’s leading startup hubs. It currently sits in the top 5 in the world for funding and performance. 

Leading the way in life sciences startups, the top industries in Boston include health (provides 18% of employment), education, and food tech. Notable startups such as IoT company Jolt and food-tech startup Cryoocyte are leading the way. 

Nearby technical university MIT influences Boston’s strong robotics industry, with over 59 robotics companies active in the city. The ecosystem is known for cross-industry collaboration enabled by the city’s small geographical area compared to other large tech hubs. 

Investment floods into Boston startups, a total of $7 billion was invested in 2021, and there’s a growing number of funds. Some of the most notable funds include Founder Collective, Glasswing, and Boston Seed. 

The startup ecosystem in Boston is notably female-friendly, with organizations such as WE BOS (Women’s Entrepreneurs Boston) providing resources, information, and networking opportunities for female founders. Boston also has several female-led VC funds. In 2019, 35% of VC funds went to startups with at least one female founder – significant compared to the national average of 3%. 

Boston is thriving as a city for startups across industries and shows no signs of slowing down.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
