Startup Guide

An MIT Inventor’s Guide to Startups: For Faculty and Students is intended as quick reference tool for MIT faculty, students and staff inventors interested in starting a company based on their inventions. 

Where can you go for help?  This guide summarizes the many resources available to MIT inventors and the institutional policies that are most relevant to startups.  We also answer questions that MIT entrepreneurs frequently ask our Technology Licensing Officers. The contents of this brochure are not intended to replace or supercede MIT policies or ownership guidelines.
