Got a startup idea? Want to start your own company?
Ever wonder what it's like to work on a startup full time?



StartIAP is a 4-week startup accelerator program for ALL students at MIT interested in immersing themselves in the startup experience.  It runs from January 5, 2016 to January 28, 2016.  Teams will be working full time on their startup ventures in the co-working space at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship (E40-160).  They will learn key concepts, get 1x1 coaching, and have access to unlimited coffee and ramen noodles.

Demo Day was awesome! See pictures. Heartfelt thanks to our mentors, guest speakers and judges for helping us make StartIAP a great experience for our students.
