June 13, 2023
Giudecca 624-625 Venice (Italy)
The event will be coordinated by Gilad Rosenzweig, executive director of MIT DesignX – the venture accelerator of the MIT School of Architecture and Planning. He will introduce the program, its history and successes from its foundation in Boston to the launch of its spin-off in Venice in 2022 in collaboration with SerenDPT.
Two startups born during the past edition of MITdesignX Venice will participate as testimonials of the program.
Through a series of assignments and exercises Gilad Rosenzweig will help participants to better frame the problem they try to cope with and the context in which they would operate. He will give valuable insights on how to develop solutions to problems and will introduce some strategies to attract investors and get funding for your startup. At the end of the day, the participating teams will present their pitch.
The Open Day will help you design and sharpen your innovative ideas, while creating synergies among participants, with the ultimate goal of facilitating the formation of strong interdisciplinary teams and prepare them for submission into the MITdesignX Venice program. (Submissions are open until July 31, 2023)
The working Language is English.
