What is MIT $100K

One competition – three independent contests – from September to May. MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition brings together students and researchers in the MIT community and outside to act on their talent, ideas and energy to launch tomorrow’s leading firms. The competition is run as a series of distinct contests – Pitch, Accelerate, and Launch.
