More Information

Weaver had big shoes to fill taking over for Kevin O’Sullivan as president and CEO of biotech incubator MBI at the end of 2018.

Anyone thinking MBI, an incubator and industry collaborator, might skip a beat needn’t have worried. Weaver, who first came to Worcester to study at Assumption College, was MBI’s COO for about three years. He had development experiences at the Worcester Business Development Corp. and MassDevelopment, and used that and the connections MBI built over the years to launch a badly needed expansion. MBI is building a 20,000-square-foot incubator space on Briden Street, a short walk from its location at Gateway Park, giving 19 more suites for startups, along with the shared equipment and industry connections MBI provides. Weaver also plays key roles with the Worcester Regional Research Bureau, the Venture Forum, and the Worcester Student Government Association.

What makes Central Mass. unique? Innovation and collaboration are built into the fabric of this community. From our incredible academic institutions, healthcare organizations, industry, and economic development partners, Worcester has great assets and embraces working together towards a brighter future.
