The Massachusetts Association of Technology Transfer Offices (MATTO) was showcasing start-ups emerging from Massachusetts research institutions, hospitals and universities.

A select number of new ventures pitched to an audience of angel investors, venture capitalists, corporate investors, and family offices.

The aim of the showcase is to give exposure to companies that have already achieved some traction from grant funding or early seed investment. Our presenting companies have already secured approximately $15 million in grant, convertible debt and equity funding.


On-site Registration will be available from 1:00pm on November 28th at the University of Massachusetts Club.

The forum will showcase start-ups from various fields, including Life Sciences; Medical Devices; Biomedical, Drug Development, Food & Nutrition; Clean Tech; Robotics; Telemedicine; Big Data; Ocean and Marine Sciences; Water Treatment; Solar Energy; Materials; and Health Tech.
