MassChallenge announces leadership change, restates its focus is not just the state

A Boston-based organization whose name suggests it is focused on that state has a new interim Chief Executive Officer. MassChallenge, the 12-year-old nonprofit that encourages start-ups at the earliest stages, announced that Executive Vice President Cait Brumme will take over as acting top executive.

MassChallenge operates a number of accelerators in the U.S. and other countries.
