The Trust Center is hiring two Program Managers to help us run our MIT delta v summer accelerator. This is a tremendous opportunity for incoming MIT Sloan students looking to get involved immediately with the MIT entrepreneurship community.

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 the teams accelerate their growth in building viable, sustainable ventures before they launch into the real world. We also prioritize helping the individuals that make up those teams, become strong entrepreneurs.

Nearly 120 teams and over 500 entrepreneurs have participated in the program, now entering its 11th​ year. Post delta v, many teams have gone on to raise additional funds while others have participated in additional accelerators such as Y Combinator and Techstars.

Learn more about how teams take part in the summer-long program by reviewing our FAQ and Guidelines pages and enjoy reviewing the Demo Day presentations from our 2020 teams as well as a complete breakdown of the participating teams from prior years.

NOTE: At this time, we plan to hold the 2021 MIT delta v program virtually, so program managers are not required to relocate in order to be considered for the position.
