With the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing, and other preventative measures, the international startup community has shifted their activities, meetings, and competitions online. Despite all hurdles, we believe that now is the right time to invest in entrepreneurs with big, bold ideas that have the potential to change our world.

EnCata's managing partner, Peter Dudin, served as a judge in the Round 2 of the MassChallenge startup competition. He was part of the industry-specific panel dedicated to High Tech, Healthcare/Life Sciences, Energy/Clean Tech, which took place on May 19th. Although the MC startup competition was originally planned to be held in Boston, both the founders and the judges found the MC online platform and Zoom conferences to be quite efficient.

MassChallenge, founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 2009, is a global, zero-equity startup accelerator. It has already accelerated over 1900 startups, which have raised more than $4.3 billion in funding and generated $2.5 billion in revenue.

At EnCata, we aim to support the international startup ecosystem by providing professional advice, mentorship, and valuable feedback.
