Starting a business is easy. Running a business is hard. Growing a business is hard. Sustaining a business is hard.

But with the right support system – mentors, advisors, and a community of your peers – you can meet the challenges and feel the satisfaction that comes from growth.

The MEWS+ helps entrepreneurs, start-ups, and business owners launch, scale, and grow safely in an ever-changing business and economic landscape.

The MEWS+ can help you:


Grow Your Business

The MEWS+ is an organization dedicated to providing entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses with impactful, rigorous business support through innovative educational programs, access to mentors, and a local community of peers.


Build Your Network

Success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Our ecosystem-based approach ensures that entrepreneurs have a support system – a diverse network of mentors, pro bono partners, funders, and other programs.


Stay Connected

Making connections throughout Middlesex County, The MEWS+ and The Hive Chester are building a community for entrepreneurs and small business owners to connect, collaborate, and learn from each other, and local business experts.

Helping entrepreneurs discover the perfect next steps.

The MEWS+ supports entrepreneurs from ideation to launch to scale. Often a lack of resources and connections make success seem out of reach for entrepreneurs. Our programs, events, and services are part of an inclusive ecosystem where all entrepreneurs can prosper.

If running your business feels hard, you’re doing it right. Discomfort means that your business has room to grow and take on new challenges. We’re here to help you find the right connections and resources to make those challenges easier to overcome.

Middlesex is home to makers, innovators, and business leaders that propel and support a unique start-up ecosystem.

But these innovators are often not recognized for their contributions.  We want to change that by sharing their stories, wisdom, and advice.  Their successes – and failures – are lessons that inspire us all.
