MassChallenge U.S. 2021 Showcase and Awards, October 28, 2021

​The 2021 MassChallenge U.S. Showcase and Awards is a celebration of creativity and innovation coming from the minds of entrepreneurs building game changing businesses that will impact the way we live, work, and play.

Each year, MassChallenge supports hundreds of startups tackling the most massive challenges of our time – from climate change to Alzheimer’s to college access and affordability. All for no-cost to the entrepreneurs and for zero equity. In its 12th year, the 2021 MassChallenge U.S. Showcase and Awards will celebrate more than 200 startups from our U.S. programs; award millions non-equity cash prizes; and virtually convene the global innovation community. The two part event includes industry-based pitch sessions and opportunities to schedule meetings with the founders during the Startup Showcase, and an hour-long Awards ceremony with celebrity keynote speakers to celebrate accomplishments of the entrepreneurs from this year’s early stage programs.
