  • Friendly heads up that the Startup Resources slide is a bit out of date. The Globe shuttered BetaBoston, HealthBox no longer runs its accelerator in Boston, and Summer @ Highland only runs in Silicon Valley now. If you're interested, I keep a regularly-updated list of Boston accelerators & incubators at https://bostonstartupsguide.com/guide/every-boston-startup-accelerator-incubator/ -- and another one for coworking spaces too.
