Forward F1rst is thrilled to announce that we’ve been invited to participate in the 2018 MassChallenge Boston accelerator program. We were selected from more than 1,600 promising startups across industries and regions around the world, and we’ll be joining the most competitive MassChallenge cohort to date.

As an organization focused on moving first generation students and graduates forward, we’re incredibly excited to participate in MassChallenge and join a program focused on moving startups forward. As a team of first generation students and graduates, we know how important it is to seek out resources and community so we’re looking forward to taking full advantage of MassChallenge’s resources and contributing to the community they’ve built over the years.

As part of the 2018 cohort, Forward F1rst will have unrivaled access to top corporate partners, expert mentorship, tailored curriculum, scholarship opportunities, and more than 26,000 square-feet of co-working space in the Innovation and Design Building in the Boston Seaport–all at zero cost and for zero equity. At the culmination of the four-month program, Forward F1rst will also have a chance to compete for shares of $1.5M in cash prizes at the MassChallenge Awards on Oct. 17.

We’ll be sharing updates throughout our time at MassChallenge, so please follow along with us here, on Twitter, and on Facebook
