Collaborative Workspace Program
The goal of the Collaborative Workspace Program is to accelerate the pace of new business formation, job creation, and entrepreneurial activity in communities, by supporting infrastructure that fuels community-based innovation. Eligible collaborative workspace applicants may apply for either Seed Grants for predevelopment and feasibility work, or Fit-out Grants for building improvements and equipment purchases.
Awards for the second round of funding were announced in Fall 2017 for seven organizations in western Massachusetts, twenty organizations in eastern Massachusetts, and three additional organizations in Greenfield and Orange. Subject to available funding, we hope to solicit the next round of proposals in the late Spring of 2018 for projects to be funded later that Fall.
