MITRE to Manage Massachusetts Innovation Bridge
MITRE will manage the MassDevelopment-funded Innovation Bridge, a new partnership between MITRE and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Innovation Bridge will help Massachusetts' most technically sophisticated companies showcase their products and services to federal agencies.
"The federal sector tends to source its innovations from a somewhat limited pool of companies and this is intended to broaden the sources of innovation available to the federal government," said Peter Sherlock, MITRE Senior Vice President, Programs and Technology and Director of Bedford Operations.
Sherlock said MITRE’s experience with Boston-based business startup accelerator MassChallenge helped inspire the project.
