The M2D2 $100K Challenge Program is sponsored in partnership with Mintz Levin, BD, Boston Scientific, MPR Product Development, Omni Components and R&Q (Regulatory & Quality Solutions).   The M2D2 $100K Challenge will award up to $100,000 in service or grant awards provided by the program sponsors.  Applicants from across the nation and beyond are invited to participate and past years have included entrepreneurs from Europe, Israel and throughout the eastern seaboard of the US.

Fifteen applicants will be selected as finalists and chosen to give their “Pitch” at Showcase Night on the U Mass campus (March 23). Last year’s Showcase Night was attended by more than 200 representatives from local venture capital firms, angel investors and service firms, allowing attendees to receive informal feedback and develop relationships with key supporters of early stage companies.

These fifteen finalists are then invited to the Awards Night on April 6 at Mintz Levin’s Boston office where they will all have Poster presentations. Additionally, the winners selected from the fifteen will give their pitch to the attendees of investors, advisors, strategic partners, and other entrepreneurs.

Apply today! Final Application Deadline is February 7.
