Valley Venture Mentors, a startup mentoring program based in Springfield and co-founded by Click President Paul Silva, today was awarded $150,000 in grant funding from the State at a ceremony officiated by the Governor. More than 30 programs applied for the funding, only 3 received funding, and the other two programs have budgets of >>10x Valley Venture Mentors. Not too shabby! Full press release from the State Government here.
The grant funding will allow significant expansion of mentoring options for Western MA-based startups. Several Clickster teams are already involved with Valley Venture Mentors (EdgeFlip & KnowledgeWare21), and we expect more will enroll in the coming years.
Congrats Valley Venture Mentors!
