Accelerators
MIT delta v & NYC Program Manager Positions

Background

MIT delta ν is an educational accelerator and the capstone entrepreneurial experience for MIT student entrepreneurs. The goal of the program is to help student teams accelerate their growth in building viable, sustainable ventures before they launch into the real world. Nearly 80 teams and over 500 entrepreneurs have participated in the program since its 2012 launch.

The NYC Startup Studio is run in conjunction with its sister location in Cambridge with the additional goal of introducing its students to the greater New York City entrepreneurial ecosystem.

After delta v, many teams have gone on to raise rounds of funding while others have participated in additional accelerators such as  Y Combinator, MassChallenge, and Techstars.
