Description

Join us for the exciting finale of the 2016 Ventureships Club program. The 3 MIT-affiliated startups that have been selected to participate in our semester program will present their semester progress and compete in the final competition to determine which startup has achieved the most progress over the 8-week program.

Free dinner will be served &

Special guests from MIT's "The Engine" initiative will give an update about this exciting new opportunity for entrepreneurs!

  • - Anantha Chandrakasan (Professor, Department Head of EECS)

  • - Kathleen Kennedy (President, MIT Enterprise Forum)

Prioritizing breakthrough ideas over early profit, The Engine represents an exciting new system for startup support, one that shortens the time from idea to investment, and from investment to impact.

To fuel The Engine, MIT is seeking to attract hundreds of millions of dollars of support and to provide hundreds of thousands of square feet of space for entrepreneurs in Kendall Square and nearby communities—starting with 26,000 square feet in its Central Square headquarters.

The Engine provides a physical space where an idea can begin to take shape. It also streamlines the legal processes and agreements required to get products to market. And it links entrepreneurs to “patient capital” from investors who share their vision of addressing big challenges with big ideas.
