MIT Global Founders' Skills Accelerator

The MIT Global Founders’ Skills Accelerator is MIT’s student venture accelerator, providing a capstone educational opportunity for MIT student entrepreneurs that prepares them to hit escape velocity and launch into the real world.

GFSA takes the best teams with an interesting idea or proof of concept focused on creating impactful, innovation-driven startups. Teams are chosen from across MIT’s schools as well from select global university partners.

Selected teams make significant progress towards identifying their beachhead market, building the right product and securing initial customers or partners, so that they are ready to pitch their ideas to investors in three cities by Demo Day in the first week of September.
