Braintree's mission is to help entrepreneurs in the Mansfield area

The Braintree Business Development Center is a non-profit regional entrepreneurial assistance organization (often called a business incubator) supporting small businesses in Northeast Ohio, particularly the Mansfield area. Since 1986 over one hundred start-up companies have found their first home with us. We focus on advanced manufacturing, alternative energy, information technology, bioscience, and agtech. We also run the community coworking spot known as Cowork Mansfield. Interested in learning more about how your start-up high tech company can become a Braintree client? Need a part-time occasional business location? Go to the "contact" page to call or email for more info.
