MassChallenge announced their Boston cohort for 2019. The companies selected represent the top 9% of high-impact and high-potential startups from around the world. UAT will have access to MassChallenge Boston’s world-class network of investors, serial entrepreneurs, and corporate executives. At the close of the program, startups will compete for more than $1M in cash prizes at the 2019 MassChallenge Boston Awards held on October 24.
UAT is very excited because this year, MassChallenge introduces for the first time a new focus area in Safety and Security. Select startups will be exposed to an ecosystem of experts, including government and military organizations, research and development centers, and defense innovation groups with deep expertise in the space. During the course of this program, UAT would have the opportunity to work with key MassChallenge partners from BAE Systems, Draper, MITRE, the National Security Innovation Network (previously MD5), and the U.S. Air Force.
