We are currently recruiting teams to pitch at this year's Ideation, which will be held on April  22nd from 6-9pm in 32-123 (32 Vassar Street, Cambridge MA 02139).

Ideation is an annual event that connects teams with early stage startup ideas to other skilled entrepreneurial students and professionals. The event brings together MIT and Harvard, along with the broader Boston science community. Last year’s event gave teams the opportunity to pitch in front of and network with an audience of ~300 people to form new collaborations and find new teammates. 

At this event, pitching teams and general audience members hear from established biotech entrepreneurs, successful early stage teams out of Harvard and MIT, and startup funding organizations. Our partners and sponsors in the past have included The Martin Trust Center for Entrepreneurship, The Engine, MIT 100k, and Harvard Innovation Lab. You can find the application to participate here.  

Some entrepreneurs, like yourself will also have the opportunity to present an idea in a 2 minute pitch following the featured speakers. Teams will receive feedback from a variety of judges involved in various stages of startup development, as well as the chance to recruit new team members in a networking session following the main event.

To learn more, visit our website, where we will soon announce this year's speakers and judges. You can also email us with any questions at
