MIT Startup Exchange presents its December Startup Workshop, centered around sustainable materials innovation. MIT Startup Exchange works to help create partnerships between over 1,800 MIT-connected startups and industry, represented by MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) members. Today, there is a large and growing societal interest for greater sustainability in the material systems that provide for a modern life style. The call is across all industry sectors, and includes the entire value chain including raw materials, material processing, material uses, and end-of-cycle treatment/reuse. This represents a challenge and an opportunity for companies, and many MIT startups are developing and providing innovative technology and business model solutions. This workshop will present perspectives from industry leaders, academics, and corporate investors, while showcasing several MIT-connected startups in this field.
The workshop will take place on Tuesday, December 3 morning, at the Industrial Meeting Center, 1 Main Street, to discuss the latest advances and real-world challenges related to sustainable materials from the perspective of the corporates, academics, and startups in the MIT ecosystem.
Speakers will be confirmed soon.
The target audience is senior corporate execs, startups and members of the MIT startup ecosystem, around 100. We're looking for 6-8 MIT startup founders for Startup Lightning Talks followed by networking. In addition, we're looking for 1 startup speaker for a panel discussion (more information to follow).
