The MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition unites students and researchers from MIT and the Greater Boston area, enabling them to transform their talent, ideas, and technology into leading companies. This competition consists of a series of progressively challenging contests that take place from September to May: Pitch, Accelerate, and Launch.
For participating teams, MIT $100K brings together a network of resources, including mentorship from venture capitalists, serial entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and legal professionals. As a result, participants may also gain access to media exposure, prototyping funds, business plan feedback, and discounted services. This competition awards over $300,000 in non-dilutive funding to new ventures each year.
