Valued at AUD10,000/person, fully sponsored by QUT Entrepreneurship

StartMIT is a 2.5 week program for students curious about entrepreneurship. It is an introduction to the skillset and spirit required for startup founders, and exposure to the resources available at MIT and QUT along your entrepreneurial journey. Five (5) places are available for continuing QUT students. EOI applications are now open and will close on 4 December.

If you are curious or have an idea and want to know more about the entrepreneurial journey, then StartMIT is for you. Students will hear from innovation leaders, participate in online activities applying learning in real time, be paired with mentors, and form virtual teams. Students will be supported by the MIT Entrepreneurs in Residence as well as by the QUT Entrepreneurship team with dedicated drop-in times for virtual or in-person advice in the Gardens Point or Kelvin Grove campus foundry spaces.

Note: Brisbane is 15 hours ahead of Cambridge, MA, USA (see time convertor).

This program is best suited to night-owls due to the time difference

(Brisbane 12:30am to 5:30am)
