NVC opening – 2/1/18

MassDiGI New VEntures Center imageFor MassDiGI, not only did January usher in a new year, it ushered in a new era as our New Ventures Center (NVC) opened. As a part of Becker College’s impressive new $7.3 million Colleen C. Barrett Center for Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the NVC will give us the opportunity to provide business assistance services to an even greater number of students and startups from campuses and communities across the region with the ultimate goal of seeing more Massachusetts-made games in the marketplace.

In addition, the NVC will serve as a home to select a Company-in-Residence and Faculty-in-Residence. To that extent, we’re very pleased to have Petricore Inc. joining us as our  inaugural Company-in-Residence along with Asst. Prof. Robert Biggert from Assumption College as our inaugural Faculty-in-Residence.

The Barrett Center is also home to Becker’s Yunus Social Business Centre, an AR/VR lab, an esports space, a lecture hall,  a digital gallery, studios, team rooms, faculty offices and MassDiGI’s administrative office.

Generous support for the Barrett Center as well as the NVC came from many foundations and individuals as well from grants provided by the US Dept. of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) and MassDevelopment.
