Launched in 2018 as a workspace for entrepreneurs and startups, The MEWS+ has evolved into a collaborative, bringing together the expertise of Middlesex County business, higher education, and municipal leaders to provide instructional and networking opportunities, mentoring, and space for entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses launch, scale, and fail safely in an ever-changing business and economic landscape.
The MEWS+ provides virtual and in-person programming, workshops, office hours, and an online community space as the catalyst to transform individuals and the Middlesex communities.
StartUpMX and GrowMX are business incubator programs each held twice a year, and PitchMX is The MEWS+ signature pitch competition for new ventures held each quarter to introduce new ideas and connect entrepreneurs to their markets, potential funders, and partnership opportunities.
Through a partnership with The Hive Chester, home-based business owners, creatives, and freelancers can apply for a sponsorship to cover the costs of coworking, meeting, and event space.
The MEWS+ is the first stop for those with big ideas, for entrepreneurs looking for mentoring and support, and for small business owners seeking guidance to grow. We aim to encourage, support, and sustain the Middlesex County startup ecosystem, and the region’s economic vitality.
