A Student to Student Workshop on Entrepreneurship
October 21, 2009
We invite students in all fields - science and engineering, biotechnology, medicine, economics and business, law and social sciences – with a strong interest in entrepreneurship, to Meet MIT, a half day immersion in an intensive program of sharing entrepreneurship experiences with students from MIT.
We will bring together students and specialists from widely different areas to a dynamic environment that will culminate with an elevator pitch contest aimed at solving and marketing an on-the-spot product technological challenge. Meet MIT is a unique moment to bring together the student communities from MIT and universities in Portugal to share relevant experiences in entrepreneurship, innovation and technological development in an intensive informal context.
Meet MIT will also constitute an opportunity for professors and researchers to share and advance new ideas in entrepreneurship, drawing on the motivation of students from the two sides of the Atlantic.
Entrepreneurship initiatives presented at Meet MIT are very diverse, ranging from high tech to low tech start-ups and social entrepreneurship.
