15.399 Entrepreneurship Lab
MIT Sloan’s Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) students get a real taste for entrepreneurship by working with curated startups on problems of strategic importance. The goal is for students to gain experience with fast-paced startup companies, applying their academic knowledge in a context of uncertainty and extreme time pressures. Popular sectors include AI, biotech, clean technology, consumer products, hardware, healthcare technologies, robotics, and software. This course is offered in both fall and spring semesters.
Startups are typically tech-intensive, intellectual property-based, massively scalable, have fewer than 40 employees, and have at least one round of outside funding. Popular sectors include (but are not limited to) software, hardware, robotics, cleantech, and life sciences.
Recent startups have worked on:
- AI for 3D Simulation
- AI matching technology for personalized makeup solutions
- Autonomous drafting software
- Blockchain and cryptocurrencies
- Cryptocurrency regulation
- Educational STEM projects
- Hockey product
- Last mile, heavy lifting drones
- Machine learning
- Natural language processing to identify key insights
- Personalized cosmetics
- Real-time quantitative biosensing
- Sustainability - decarbonization
E-Lab 15.3991, the undergraduate version of this course, is now part of the MIT Entrepreneurship & Innovation (E&I) Minor.
