What is Richi Entrepreneurs?

Richi Entrepreneurs is a Boston-based initiative launched by the Richi Foundation, whose mission is to foster and catalyze the development of international entrepreneurship ecosystems, taking Boston's unique case as a role model.

How does Richi Entrepreneurs tackle its mission?

Richi Entrepreneurs runs 3-week immersion programs into Boston's advanced innovation ecosystem. You can review the past and upcoming editions of the program here.

Why is Boston the best location for my project?

Positive impact projects have lots of opportunities in Boston, especially for Life Sciences (Boston is the world's top biotech hub), and CleanTech (the sector is growing extremely fast over the past years) startups. Please visit Why Boston section for more information.

When will the next Richi Entrepreneurs program take place?

Please review the upcoming edition of our Boston Immersion program here.

Can I participate in the program?

We look for entrepreneurs with positive impact startups. The startups should have a scalable business model and address global challenges in Life Sciences (BioTech, MedTech, Digital Healthcare) or CleanTech sectors.

We believe anyone can be an Impact Entrepreneur: students, researchers, graduates and industry professionals. Participants must consider themselves as change-leaders, have a competent team, and a speak English fluently.

How much does the program cost?

For specific program fees, please visit our upcoming edition page to learn detailed information about early birds, regular fees and deadlines. 

Fee covers the program for up to 2 team members. Housing, flight tickets and meals are not included. Housing may be offered as an option (ask for housing conditions if interested).

This fee may be covered either by participants themselves; or by sponsors.

Can more than 2 people per startup participate in the program?

Yes! We allow a maximum of 4 entrepreneurs per startup. You'll need to add $1.500 for each additional team member joining the program. For example, if you want to participate 3 people, your program fee will be the regular program fee + $1.500 (extra team member).

I want to participate in the program; do you provide accommodation for my family?

Unfortunately, our optional housing can only accommodate the entrepreneurs participating in the program. However, we'll be more than happy to provide you with some tips and recommendations to find a good accommodation for your folks.

I am a corporation/organization interested in open innovation, or in supporting impact startups; which options do I have to partner with Richi Entrepreneurs?
