Our Mission: Accelerate the success of science and technology entrepreneurs and serve as the destination for people in technology in MetroWest. We facilitate access to the information, resources, expertise and connections necessary to grow innovative businesses.
The initial impetus behind TechSandBox included the founder's personal experience wasting 2+ hours every time she headed to downtown Boston in order to increase her knowledge of business and entrepreneurship, or to mentor and advise others. She asked hundreds of people wit hin the 35+ towns where most experienced STEM professionals live. The conclusions, based on the factors below, were an overwhelming 'we need it':
Lifestyle choices compel people to choose to live in MetroWest
Most science and technology professionals in the region have valuable experience that could increase their chances of success as an entrepreneur or as an intrapreneur
There is a gap of support and community for those in science and technology, regardless of functional expertise or company size, compelling MetroWest residents to spend 20% of their already-long-day commuting inside Rt. 128
