Innovation doesn't grow in the comfort zone. It takes courage to breathe life into a new idea. But there's a common belief that entrepreneurs are born, not made. At Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), we know that this is a myth. MIT graduates have started over 33,000 active companies that generate over $1.2 trillion in annual revenue and employ over 3.3 million people, making MIT the 10th largest economy in the world. And in just three years of the residential MIT Bootcamps, its graduates have raised over $70 million in funding for ventures incubated in the Bootcamps. Entrepreneurship can be taught. The journey starts with knowledge, not genetics. So in this online Bootcamp you will develop a systematic toolkit for venture creation and gain a disciplined mindset of the successful entrepreneur.
Funding for participants in MIT Bootcamps in 3 years.
The world is operating at 52% of its entrepreneurial capacity.
