AstraID wins MassIT Government Innovation Competition with MassChallenge

November 3, 2014


Astra IDentity has been proud to be a 2014 Finalist in the MassChallenge accelerator program. Over 1600 companies applied this year but only 128 were selected. The startups hail from diverse industries and countries. Participating in the program has given us access to people and resources that would have been very difficult for us to obtain on our own.

This year the Government Innovation Office within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts decided to create the MassIT Government Innovation Competition that would grant a MassChallenge company access to a cash grant along with the right to pilot its technology for the state.

Astra IDentity is proud to be selected as a winner for the prestigious competition and was awarded the prize at the MassChallenge Awards ceremony on 10/29/14 by Governor Duval Patrick and Government Innovation Officer Tony Parham.
