Thank you for your applying to be a member of the 2017 MIT delta v cohort at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship this summer. Applications close on Friday March 31st at 8pm Eastern.
You may find it easier to review the questions first, collect the required information for you and your fellow team members, then return and complete the online form. If so, you can find a pdf of the application here: http://bit.ly/deltav-pdf

Remember: At least one co-founder of each participating team must be a current MIT student or post-doc. A complete FAQ can be found at: http://entrepreneurship.mit.edu/accelerator/faq/

Finally: Teams must also shoot a 60-second video and upload it to a site such as YouTube or Vimeo to complete the application process. You can not save this part way through, so be sure your video is finished and online before you begin the form. Thank you.
