June 8, 2021 — The Town of Burlington, Mass., and Butterfly Network, Inc. are pleased to announce that Butterfly, an innovative digital health company with a mission to democratize access to medical imaging, will build its brand-new corporate headquarters at The District Campus in Burlington.
“We’re excited to welcome a company like Butterfly at The District,” said Town Administrator, Paul Sagarino. “For years, Burlington has been at the forefront of implementing proactive policies to encourage economic development, and Butterfly’s arrival demonstrates the appeal of our community as well as the potential to grow given the talented workforce in the area and new opportunities for collaboration with places like Lahey Medical Center and Northeastern University.”
Butterfly’s new corporate headquarters in Massachusetts will have the capacity for approximately 275 people with the ability to expand further. It will serve as a flagship space to drive growth and innovation at Butterfly, and a place to foster collaboration with its talent across its other offices in Guilford, Conn., New York City and Palo Alto.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Butterfly Network to the Commonwealth’s nation-leading innovation ecosystem and strong medical device industry as they continue their growth trajectory,” said Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy. “Burlington is a standout example of the regional life sciences clusters developing across Massachusetts, and the Baker-Polito Administration will work with Butterfly to find the people and partnerships they need to execute upon their mission to innovate ultrasound technology and advance global health equity.”
“We believe that Massachusetts, and Burlington in particular, is the perfect place to continue our journey as a fast-growing medical technology company,” said Todd Fruchterman, M.D., Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Butterfly. “We were attracted to the innovative landscape across Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and look forward to sharing a hometown with some of the world’s leaders in medicine and medical technology.”
“Life sciences companies of all sizes continue to find opportunity here in the Commonwealth and we are excited to welcome Butterfly Network as the newest member of our ecosystem,” said Massachusetts Life Sciences Center President and CEO Kenn Turner. “We’re confident they will be able to leverage the talent, innovation, and infrastructure that sets our life sciences sector apart both nationally and globally.”
The newly built offices are scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2022, and members of Butterfly’s team have already moved into temporary offices in Burlington’s The District ahead of the new headquarters’ completion. Cushman & Wakefield represented Butterfly in the transaction.
