BOSTON – On Tuesday, October 4th, SBA Massachusetts and other distinguished guests are joining to celebrate North Shore InnoVentures as an awardee for the 2016 SBA Growth Fund Accelerator Fund Competition. 

“Small businesses are the backbone of our national economy and regional job growth,” said Congressman Seth Moulton (MA-06). “So, it’s critical that our country’s small businesses have reliable access to capital in order to innovate, grow our economy, and create new jobs. I’m proud that Massachusetts entrepreneurs did so well in this national funding competition, including North Shore InnoVentures, Inc. in Beverly. I look forward to seeing the impact this federal funding will have on job creation and economic development here in northeastern Massachusetts.”


Media Invited to Attend


  • Jason Denoncourt, Economic Development Director, Office of US Congressman Seth Moulton
  • Martha Farmer, President and CEO of North Shore InnoVentures
  • Robert Nelson, SBA Massachusetts District Director


What:       The Growth Accelerator Fund Competition was launched in 2014 with $2.5 million in appropriated funds. The first year of the competition presented an opportunity for the SBA to engage with and support organizations whose sole purpose is to help start-ups grow, become commercially viable and have a real and sustained economic impact. The goal of the competition is to get an extra infusion of capital to qualified accelerators and the burgeoning ecosystem in which they play, which, in turn, provides resources to boost the startup and entrepreneurship communities around them.


Where:      100 Cummings Center, Suite 438N, Beverly, MA 01915
