Welcome Entrepreneurs!



VentureShips was established to spread the entrepreneurial spirit at MIT through first-hand experiences. Since its inception in 2004, VentureShips has been connecting MIT-founded startups and entrepreneurially-minded students to solve challenging business problems. Students gain real-world startup experience and startups gain much-needed support for their growing businesses. Together we’re fueling the MIT entrepreneur community.

In each VentureShips cohort we seek:
*STARTUPS with a specific business problem that can be addressed by student(s) in an 8-week part-time program, who can meet regularly with students, and who can act as mentors by sharing the experiences and lessons of successful entrepreneurship.
*STUDENTS who want to gain first-hand experience in the startup environment and can commit between 2-10 hours each week for the semester. 

Read on to learn more about the program. We encourage all startup companies in all stages to apply.
