When & Where
StartLabs was established by MIT engineering students in the summer of 2011 in order to catalyze student engineers to bring technical innovations to society through entrepreneurship, specifically by having students:
1.Start their own companies – transforming ideas and class projects into seed-stage ventures.
2. Work in rapidly expanding companies – place students in internships and full-time positions at promising startups.
We are creating the next generation of technical entrepreneurs.
