In 2017, the MIT NYC Startup Studio became the second location of the MIT delta v summer accelerator. We expanded in recognition of the important role the New York entrepreneurial community can play in fostering student ventures into successful companies, especially in certain vertical industries.
Led by founding Managing Director Carly Chase, the NYC Startup Studio has provided a summer home to numerous student teams launching businesses in areas such as real estate, beauty, consumer tech, fashion, fintech, and media. These teams have taken full advantage of New York’s unique entrepreneurial community in these industries. In 2023, we look to return to the city following a pause during the pandemic.
