February 14, 2022


We'd love to have you join us! Watch one of our short videos here or here.

ACTION's new promotional videos are a great introduction to all that membership in ACTION has to offer incubators and other entrepreneur support organizations. Our current members support startups in the life sciences, cleantech/decarbonization, robotics, advanced materials, marine/maritime, aerospace, and other convergent technologies. The breadth of our incubator network offers entrepreneurs a diverse hub of knowledge, experience, and resources that is most often unavailable from a single incubator.

ACTION membership provides an opportunity for managers of incubators and innovation centers to engage in regular conferencing and roundtables to exchange ideas and connect with like-minded colleagues on topics related to running a shared workspace to support technology startups. Members exchange best practices and work thorough common challenges that managers often face. ACTION's Incubator Insights forum encourages thought leadership where professionals can enhance their skills and network with others committed to advancing the industry along the highest professional standards. Members and sponsors regularly take part in ACTION's Pre-Landing programs for international tech startups, allowing visibility and engagement with companies interested in expanding into US markets and looking for first offices within the New England innovation ecosystem. Would your organization benefit from being part of the network? Find out more at https://actionnewengland.org/prp/membership-benefits/.

ACTION Launches Circular Economy Initiative with Training Modules for Incubators and Accelerators

January 18, 2022


Facilitating the shift towards the circular economy requires widespread adoption and diffusion of circular thinking, particularly among startups and entrepreneurs who can disrupt their respective industries. Incubators and accelerators have great potential to accelerate and advance the circular economy in North America by providing resources and support to innovative startups and help them incorporate circular economy concepts.

ACTION has initiated a no-cost, self-guided program with a collection of modules from prominent product design and circular economy experts to assist your organization in mentoring and training startups in circular thinking. Regardless of the industry sector focus of an incubator/accelerator, the collection of resources will provide a circular economy curriculum to help your network of startups and entrepreneurs learn more about the circular economy and apply these concepts to make their business more sustainable, impactful and attractive to investors. In-person/online training sessions are also available for incubators and accelerators.
