START.nano’s vision is that access to MIT.nano’s state-of-the-art laboratories can minimize the cost of launching a nascent idea, helping to increase the survival rate of promising companies and potentially shortening the time it takes for their innovations to reach the market. MIT affiliation is not required.
Participating startups will have access to tools and other advantages that can help them develop their prototypes, validate the data, and position their companies for the next stage of growth.
Applications are due April 7, 2023. Apply HERE
In addition to discounted access to MIT.nano’s facilities, START.nano companies become a part of the MIT community, where they can work alongside talented researchers and receive support through the MIT innovation ecosystem, including being eligible to participate in the MIT Startup Exchange. In return, MIT students, faculty, and industry partners may gain direct connections with hard-tech startups tackling tomorrow’s challenges.

Disclaimer: MIT Startup Exchange can make introductions that ideally provide open ended discussions in order to share mutual interests and potentially create common ground that incite the parties to collaborate. MIT Startup Exchange introductions may eventually lead to mutual partnerships, but that is not in any way guaranteed by MIT, MIT Corporate Relations, MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) or MIT Startup Exchange, which takes no responsibility for these outcomes and no formal part in such discussions following our introduction. MIT Startup Exchange and its activities and events are not for purposes of soliciting investment or offering securities.
