Startups are periodically nominated for MIT STEX25 by leading members of MIT’s startup ecosystem, including the Deshpande Center for Technological Innovation, the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, the Venture Mentoring Service, and MIT departments and labs.
Once inducted, MIT STEX25 startups are advised and prepared for industry interactions, including the refining and rehearsing of presentations, the development of written and video promotional materials, and the building of relationships with program directors at the MIT's Industrial Liaison Program.
