15 Polish & Greek Startups Visit MIT

In June 2016, participants and winners of the MIT Enterprise Forum Accelerator Program and competition visited Boston and Cambridge. The group attended a week-long bootcamp at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where they will participated workshops which hone their business skills, learned about what it means to do business in the U.S., visited labs and local area startups, connected with local entrepreneurs, and pitched to potential investors.

The 15 participating startups represented diverse technologies, from biomedicine to Internet of Things, from scuba gear to wheelchairs, from materials to online marketplaces and enterprise software.

MIT Enterprise Forum is a global network devoted to helping early-stage entrepreneurs transform their ideas into world-changing companies. We are part of MIT Technology Review, a media company wholly owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
