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

A select number of new ventures will pitch 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.

The forum will showcase start-ups from various fields, including Life Sciences; Medical Devices; Biotechnology; Biomedical; Clean Tech; Energy Storage; Robotics; Wearable Devices; Big Data; Manufacturing; Materials; and Health Tech.

To be eligible to present at the showcase: you must have formed a company which is a spin-off from a Massachusetts university, hospital, or research institution and which is sufficiently advanced to warrant private, third party funding.

To apply to present at the showcase please fill out the Presenter Application Form 2018 on and submit to by November 2, 2018.
