If you’ve started a company, you’re in good company. Hundreds of MIT Sloan alumni “hang up their shingle” every year, resulting in 200 to 400 businesses started annually. Today, there are nearly 25,800 active companies founded by MIT alumni, employing 3.3 million people and generating worldwide sales of $2 trillion. That’s the equivalent of the 11th-largest economy in the world.

MIT Sloan wants to hear about your company (or companies). We want to know where you are, what you’re doing, and how you made it work.

Enter the Digital Shingle Project, an MIT Entrepreneurship Center endeavor to catalog companies started by MIT alumni, students, faculty, staff, and others associated with the Institute. Founders will have their “shingle” displayed throughout the MIT Entrepreneurship Center and on the center’s website.

To have your company included, visit the Digital Shingle Project, and submit the “Five W’s” (Who, What, When, Where, Why) of your business and any achievements or accolades worth noting. Also submit contact information and include a high-resolution image of your company logo.
