The Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship features summer programs for aspiring entrepreneurs:
- MIT delta v
- Entrepreneurship Internship
MIT delta v
MIT delta v 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. Teams receive dedicated space in the co-working environment of the Martin Trust Center from June to early September where they will work on their ventures full-time for the whole summer. Learn more about our accelerator and its alumni teams.
The program is run out of two locations during the summer: the Martin Trust Center on the MIT campus, and the NYC Startup Studio in Manhattan.
The Entrepreneurship Internship is a paid summer internship program open to ALL undergraduates at MIT* and provides an immersive work experience at a startup founded by MIT delta v alumni. Students work side-by-side with the startup’s founding team and have an opportunity to contribute to meaningful projects, receive one-on-one mentoring, and determine if startup life is right for them. The internship will run for 8 to 10 weeks; most positions will begin in early June.
(* rising first-years, sophomores, and juniors only; seniors graduating in June are not eligible)
