MIT Startup Exchange is pleased to announce the addition of six companies to its roster of STEX25 startups. New additions to the program include: Advanced Potash Technologies (agricultural technology), Arundo (big data), Catalia Health (digital health), Figur8 (sports sensors), Tetrascience (data analytics), and TVision Insights (TV advertising).

“As STEX25 enters its second year we continue to be impressed by the innovative technologies STEX25 startups are creating, as well as the strength of their founding teams,” said MIT Startup Exchange Program Director Marcus Dahllof.

STEX25 is a startup accelerator
within MIT Startup Exchange
featuring 25 "industry-ready" startups.

Since its launch in September 2016, STEX25 has added startups on a roughly quarterly basis, STEX25 startups are among the over 1,200 startups in the MIT Startup Exchange database. STEX25 startups receive promotion, travel, and advisory support and are prioritized for meetings by the MIT Industrial Liaison Program’s (ILP) 30 industry liaisons.

“For startups, the benefits of being invited to join STEX25 are very real,” continued Dahllof. “Access to potential customers is a key challenge startups face. For decades, the ILP has connected industry to MIT. Startup Exchange is able to exploit that deep knowledge and expertise to make targeted introductions with high success rates.”

In addition, STEX25 is adding tailored services to further collaboration with ILP corporate members including targeted Startup Exchange workshops, ILP Conferences, startup showcases, and other tailored events.

The broad group of STEX25 startups represent a number of important fields including artificial intelligence, automation, data analytics, energy, healthcare, internet of things (IoT), life science, advanced manufacturing, machine learning, materials, nanotech, sensors, and more.

“These startups exhibit the high-caliber talent and cutting-edge technology that are hallmarks of MIT, and industry partners find them especially effective in pioneering solutions for complicated, hard-to-understand technologies,” said Executive Director of MIT Corporate Relations Karl Koster. “We continue to see strong interest from our corporate ILP members resulting in advanced discussions and multiple partnerships.”
