CSAIL and MIT EECS have launched an entrepreneurship program for 2012/2013 that includes a new Spring 2013 subject, Entrepreneurship Project. The subject is available to both undergraduates and graduate students under the number 6.S078. Entrepreneurship Project is an intensive project experience in enterprise planning, formation, and execution planning. Each participating team will work on their own project and will have access to faculty, venture capital advisers, and outside commercial mentors. Entrepreneurship Project is a graded subject. Units are by arrangement, but are typically 12 to 24 units and correspond to the number of hours per week each participant will invest in subject activity.
Each participant will need to be highly motivated to work independently. Teams are preferred, but not all members of a team need to register for credit. Weekly meetings will provide an opportunity to hear lectures from distinguished entrepreneurs, make contact with faculty and other mentors, and stay connected to the subject's community. In addition, we will have a demo day event where will you will present.
To participate in Entrepreneurship Project you must apply by January 11, 2012, with a one page proposal. Mail your proposal in PDF format to email@example.com, and it must explicitly include the following points:
