Nuts and Bolts of New Ventures will be explored in this 29th annual course offering. Nuts and Bolts is the largest entrepreneurship class taught at MIT and the oldest ongoing IAP offering on new ventures.

Open to members of the M.I.T. Community and to others interested in entrepreneurship. You may take the course for credit (15.s21 – 3 Units Pass/Fail) or just sign up and attend in a Not for Credit capacity – see Enrollment above.

Recommended for persons who are interested in starting or are involved in a new venture, including social development ventures, and for persons wanting to get an introduction to the area. Persons planning to enter the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition should find the course particularly useful. Historically approximately 50% of the class has been from Sloan and 50% from the Science, Engineering and Architecture Schools. This "cross-school" course has resulted in the formation of $100K Competition Teams and a number of successful startups.
