How many times have you heard a captain of industry say, "It all started with an idea they had at MIT"?
Yes, cutting-edge science and technology research from our classrooms and laboratories has made the world a better place and brought fame and fortune to countless scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors along the way. And our white-coated colleagues are still at it! Join us for a rare view into some of the current MIT research that will shape the future of entrepreneurship. Nobody knows for sure what the "next big thing" will be, but whatever it is, it's probably already underway on our campus!
The talks we've planned are designed for generalists with lively minds and healthy curiosity. No advanced degrees required!
