Through our new "Start6" program, we are offering opportunities for both our graduate and undergraduate students to learn more about the nuts and bolts of taking these ideas to the next level and build a successful company. Topics include (but are not limited to) equity division, models of funding, marketing, scalability, and team building. Additionally, we plan to highlight some of the campus resources already available to students, including the Venture Mentoring Service, TLO, and the 100K Challenge.
Ideally, this year’s inaugural workshop will bring together roughly 50 MIT engineering students--primarily from, but not limited to, Course VI. We hope that the event will not only allow students to meet successful entrepreneurs and leaders in the VC field, but will also provide them with the resources needed to consider the vast opportunities in front of them, as well as the inspiration to pursue their passion.
