2018 MIT Global Startup Labs Program in Azerbaijan


If you are a student in Azerbaijan interested in mobile technology entrepreneurship and software development, join the MIT Global Startup Labs Program this summer to gain technical and entrepreneurship skills.

This is not a typical class - it’s an intensive bootcamp where you will work in teams to develop and ultimately launch a mobile-app startup. Gain access to mentorship, investors, contacts, and seed funding during a demo day.

Since its launch 17 years ago, the MIT Global Startup Labs (GSL) Program has been promoting economic development by cultivating young technology entrepreneurs. It partners with universities, incubators, and companies in more than 20 countries to offer mobile and internet technology incubator courses led by MIT student instructors.

The pilot MIT Global Startup Labs Program in Azerbaijan will bring together gifted university students from a number of Azerbaijani universities to guide them through a real-world entrepreneurial experience. Courses will focus on ideation, market research, pitching, and appropriate technology platforms, culminating with a pitch and prototype competition (Demo Day).

This is an intensive 6.5-week course. Accepted students must commit to attending every day from morning till evening (10am - 5pm), with homework and required exercises often assigned for the evening. The course will take place in Baku from June 27 - August 10, 2018.

If you are interested in being part of this program, please apply by 11:59pm Baku Time on May 29, 2018.
