Massachusetts Medical Device Development Center (M2D2) is proud to host and sponsor this MVVF Presentation Event.
Secretary Greg Bialecki will be discussing
the state's economic development strategic plan, which was recently
submitted to the Legislature. The plan outlines five
initiatives-including increased support for innovation and
entrepreneurship-that build on the Patrick-Murray Administration's job
creation and economic development strategy that has led Massachusetts
out of the global economic recession faster than the rest of the nation.
There will also be a question and answer session at the end of Secretary Bialecki's presentation
