MIT Global Startup Workshop (MIT GSW) is an annual three-day conference that brings together entrepreneurs, students, investors, and key stakeholders from across the world to accelerate the entrepreneurial ecosystem of a host region. Through a series of tailored workshops, panels, and keynote speakers, MIT GSW aims to share the entrepreneurial practices that have empowered thousands of companies to launch from MIT.
MIT GSW is organized by a diverse group of graduate students and is strongly supported by the MIT entrepreneurial ecosystem including the MIT Legatum Center for Development & Entrepreneurship, the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, and the MIT Regional Entrepreneurship Accelerator Program (MIT REAP).
Since 1998, our nonprofit, student-run organization has held 21 international workshops across six continents, and has attracted participants from over 70 nations. We are proud to continue this annual tradition into 2019.
