STEX25 Features

STEX25 | MIT Startup Exchange

What is STEX25?

STEX25 is a startup accelerator focused on fostering collaboration between MIT-connected startups and member companies of MIT's Industrial Liaison Program (ILP). MIT Startup Exchange and ILP are integrated programs of MIT Corporate Relations.

Like all the 1,000+ startups in the MIT Startup Exchange database, STEX25 companies are technology-based startups with a connection to MIT, whether they are based on licensed MIT technology or founded by MIT faculty, staff, or alumni. However, STEX25 startups have been identified as particularly well-suited for industry collaboration. These young, vibrant companies have proved themselves with early use cases, clients, demos, or partnerships, and may be on the cusp of significant growth.

Nominate Startups for STEX25

MIT Startup Exchange encourages nominations from the MIT entrepreneurial ecosystem, which includes the Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, the Technology Licensing Office (TLO), the Venture Mentoring Service (VMS), and other large MIT labs such the MIT Media Lab and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL). New companies are added quarterly. Only incorporated, MIT-connected startups registered in the MIT Startup Exchange database are eligible for STEX25. MIT "connectedness" is defined as having an MIT faculty/staff/alumnus co-founder. Quarterly nominations are due September 30th, December 31st, March 31st, and June 30th. For more information about the nominating process, contact MIT Startup Exchange: startupexchange@mit.edu, or phone: 617-253-0438.
