Creating the next generation of innovation-driven entrepreneurs.

MIT delta ν is an educational accelerator for MIT student entrepreneurs to help them accelerate their growth in building viable, sustainable ventures.

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

The MIT delta v accelerator takes place at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship on the MIT campus and the NYC Startup Studio in Manhattan for teams interested in being exposed to and taking advantage of that city’s entrepreneurial community. Although teams will select one location for the summer, they will have access to travel back and forth to both.

Help us create the next generation of innovation-driven entrepreneurs.


  • The programs are a capstone educational opportunity for MIT entrepreneurs before they launch into the real world.
  • We take the best teams with an interesting idea or proof of concept and focus on creating impactful, innovation-driven startups.
  • For the summer of 2019, 17 teams worked full-time at the Martin Trust Center, and 7 teams were based at the MIT NYC Startup Studio. In both locations, these teams were focused on:
    • Team building / organization development and dynamics
    • Understanding their target market, customers, and users
    • Learning the mechanics of venture creation (company formation, legal, financial, raising money and more)
  • For the summer of 2020, due to COVID-19, the entire program is taking place virtually. Due to the challenges of conducting an accelerator online, we reduced our usual cohort size to 16 teams total.
