Event description

Description

The Engine MIT Working Groups Community Forum

MIT seeks to accelerate an ecosystem where the world’s brightest innovators find the comprehensive support needed to develop their biggest and most transformative ideas from the formative stage to the most effective implementation. MIT has launched an accelerator structure outside of MIT – The Engine – to advance innovation in a space underserved by current incubators and investors. With a focus on scientific and technological innovation The Engine will foster innovations that offer potential for transformative impact but require a longer developmental time line and patient capital. Our approach is also tailored to the needs of founders who seek access to a critical combination of resources and services. MIT Working Groups have been established to guide the development of policies and simplified procedures specifically as they relate to MIT’s launch of The Engine. A community forum will take place on March 22, 2017 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm in room 32-123 to discuss some of the key ideas in advance of a Working Groups report to be submitted in April 2017.
