Braintree's mission is to help grow technology businesses and entrepreneurs in the Mansfield and Canton areas.

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 Mansfield and Canton. 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 agriculture/food processing. We also run the community coworking spots in both Mansfield and Canton. Interested in learning more about how your start-up high tech company can become a Braintree tenant? Need a part-time occasional business location? Go to the "contact" page to call or email for more info.

"Caffeinated Ideas" is a chance to bounce business ideas off a group of supportive experts. April 27 in Mansfield-May 10 in Canton. Details are at the Events tab above.
