The Foundry is a self-sustaining center of creativity and collaboration in the Kendall Square neighborhood offering the Cambridge community opportunities in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. The organization helps to facilitate access for residents, especially underrepresented communities to the dynamic working and learning environment of Kendall Square.
Launched by MIT, The Engine bridges the gap between discovery and commercialization by empowering disruptive technologies with the long-term capital, knowledge, network connections, and the specialized equipment and labs they need to thrive. Tough Tech companies have historically been underserved and underfunded, leaving many breakthrough inventions stuck inside the lab. This is why we focus exclusively on founders pioneering technology with the genuine ability to transform the planet. Everything we do is in the service of our founders and their work.
The Kendall Square Association is a business-membership organization, and our mission is to build partnerships among our members, host programming events, advocate for public policy issues, and tell Kendall’s story of transformation from an industrial center to a global innovation hub.
