MIT delta v is an initiative across all of MIT’s schools and colleges: the School of Engineering; the School of Science; the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences; the School of Architecture and Planning; the MIT Sloan School of Management; and the Schwarzman College of Computing. The accelerator is overseen by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship and is the capstone educational opportunity for MIT student entrepreneurs as it prepares them to hit escape velocity and launch into the real world. Martin Trust is rated the second-best undergraduate program in the U. S. behind Babson College and ahead of UC Berkeley (editor’s alma mater). We thought it useful to show videos of Delta V’s winning pitches to readers.
“Welcome students, alumni, and community members to MIT delta v Demo Day 2022! This year’s accelerator was our first to be run out of the Trust Center since 2019 and it was great to have the teams back in person working to build their ventures. Today, they get to share the results of all their hard work. Demo Day is our favorite day of the year. You will be blown away by what our student teams have done to create new ventures that will make the world better. Demo Day is the culmination of a year-long journey to become an MIT-quality innovation-driven entrepreneur. We couldn’t be prouder to show them off on the stage at Kresge – and inspire you, our audience. In fact, the majority of our cohort comes from people in the audience who say, “I want to and can do that!”
