September 9 – 22

Each September, the vibrant energy of the new school year is channeled into a celebration known as t=0.

MIT students understand the equation t=0 means “the time is now,” as a new cycle of entrepreneurial activities kicks off. We partner with departments and student groups across campus to host events and showcase the array of opportunities available to all, from first-years to grad students and postdocs.
