Innovations from MIT often address the problems humanity most needs to solve, including sustainable energy, urban resiliency, fresh water, food for all, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and infectious disease. By helping MIT inventors connect with mentors, collaborators, networks, and funding, we help them translate new science into transformative innovation. MIT entrepreneurs make a sizable global impact: The active companies formed by living MIT alumni produce estimated annual revenues on par with the gross domestic product of the 10th-largest economy in the world.
MIT is at the center of one of the most vibrant hubs of innovation and entrepreneurship on Earth. To make our community the world’s most stimulating and supportive academic environment for innovation, we offer classes, mentorship, guidance, and resources tailored for student, faculty, postdoc, and alumni entrepreneurs. We also cultivate the strength of our regional innovation ecosystem, in part through an ambitious, decade-long redevelopment initiative in Kendall Square.
