CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 10, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Technology startup founders from Poland and Greece will visit Boston June 11–19. The group will attend a week-long boot camp at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where they will participate in workshops that hone their business skills, learn about what it means to do business in the U.S., visit labs and startups, connect with local entrepreneurs, and pitch to potential investors.
The 15 participating startups represent diverse technologies–from biomedicine to the Internet of things, from scuba gear to wheelchairs, from materials to online marketplaces and enterprise software. Learn more about the startups at http://bootcamp.mitef.org/.
The visiting entrepreneurs are recent participants in the MIT Enterprise Forum Startup Competition in Poland and Greece. Many hope to establish a presence in Boston.
"This will be a game-changing experience for all participants, and will help them move the needle closer to success," says Vassilis Papakonstantinou, chairman of MIT Enterprise Forum Greece, who will be sending 10 entrepreneurs. "After going through an intense three-month acceleration program, these startups are ready to come to Cambridge to hone their knowledge, expand their horizons, and build strong relationships with the local technology and investment community in the U.S."
"The five teams attending from Poland represent creative, deep technology projects from diverse fields such as biomedicine, nanotechnology, and biomimetics. These startups are part of a growing tide of companies who are helping transition Poland to a more knowledge-driven economy," says Pawel Bochniarz, chairman of MIT Enterprise Forum Poland.
The event is organized by MIT Enterprise Forum and MIT Technology Review.
