The MESH Incubator (est. 2016) is an in-house innovation and entrepreneurship center at Mass General Brigham and Harvard Medical School. The first incubator of its kind integrated into a hospital system, and with a physical location on the ground, MESH has actively created and supported over 1000 clinicians and researchers since 2016 through projects, patents, company-formation, innovation education, and much more.

Our program alumni includes clinicians, researchers, engineers, industry, and students in Boston and beyond. Over 200 investigators are currently enrolled in our novel MESH Core Innovation Bootcamp, the first hospital-system wide formal training curriculum in health innovation. 900+ innovators are currently registered on our novel Innovation MESH Network, a platform built with Mass General Brigham Innovation. We have incubated, from scratch, 10 companies with clinician founders and teams from MIT, Harvard, and industry since 2016. We have produced ~10 published or pending patents on medical devices, and published over 15 papers since we launched our Innovation in Operations (MESH IO) Research Group in August 2020.
