WESTBOROUGH, Mass. – Today, the Healey-Driscoll Administration announced $800,000 to bolster the biomanufacturing sector in Southeastern Massachusetts through a new grant to the Mansfield Bio-Incubator, a regional biotech and life sciences incubator that assists local entrepreneurs and startups to accelerate their projects, attract new talent, provide training, and boost capital investment.

The new, two-year grant from the Technology & Innovation Ecosystem Award grant program, managed by the Innovation Institute at the Mass Tech Collaborative, will help Mansfield Bio-Incubator support growing companies working to innovate in cell and gene therapy, and 3D culture technology. The capital investment will allow the facility to purchase new equipment to boost biomanufacturing in the region, helping respond to increased demand from the Bio-Incubator’s existing members and to scale-up support for new entrepreneurs in Southeastern Massachusetts. In turn, this will drive increased economic growth and boost workforce training activities in an underserved region with a diverse population.
