Thank you for applying to take part in the first ever MIT NYC Startup Studio this summer, overseen by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.

Applications for this program close on Sunday, April 9th at 8pm Eastern.
Remember: At least one co-founder of each participating team must be a current MIT student or post-doc. Further info can be found at: http://entrepreneurship.mit.edu/accelerator/mit-nyc-startup-studio/

START
 
Your team must have at least one co-founder level member who is an MIT student or post-doc in the 2016-2017 academic year that can commit to working on your startup full-time over the summer. You must be in a degree-granting program to be considered an MIT student. Those graduating in either February or June of 2017 are considered current MIT students for the purpose of the MIT NYC Startup Studio.

 
Do you have a current MIT student as a member of your founding team? *

     
 
The NYC Startup Studio is a parallel program to MIT delta v such that if you have already applied to delta v (or plan to apply before March 31st), we can use your team's MIT delta v application for consideration for New York. There is no need to complete a second form.

Teams may choose to apply to only MIT delta v, only the NYC Startup Studio, or both. Applying to both will have NO influence on your acceptance into one or the other of our programs.

Additionally, if you feel that submitting a separate application for the NYC Startup Studio with different responses than MIT delta v will increase your chances of acceptance into the NYC program, please feel free to complete this form. NOTE: There are no questions on this form that are not on the MIT delta v application.

If you have any questions regarding this, please email eir@mit.edu
 
Should we use your team's MIT delta v application for consideration for the NYC Startup Studio?
