Welcome to the Innovation Access Network

A vibrant technology exchange rather than mere marketplace, the Innovation Access Network, IAN, empowers entrepreneurs and small businesses to share new ideas and innovative technologies with larger technology firms, universities, research labs and government agencies in a secure, strategic, and targeted manner. Similarly, IAN enables larger entities to seek out new business relationships with an expanding pool of global innovators.

Developed by the Massachusetts High Technology Council, IAN enhances a company’s access to other firms or suppliers that may exist outside of traditional procurement pipelines, and improves the innovator’s ability to connect with potential partners and customers beyond their normal reach.

IAN is global and cross-sector in scope and specializes in creating connections to the nation’s premier technology cluster assets including world-class universities, research labs, and companies. Learn More ►

“Massachusetts and New England are home to the nation's leading technology firms, defense contractors, universities, research labs and small businesses and IAN is the connective tissue for the region's innovative teclnology cluster that will help create new partnerships, business opportunities and jobs.”
 - U.S. Senator John Kerry -
