MIT FUSE

A fully immersive, full-time educational program. A three-week sprint with one overarching goal … helping MIT students understand and achieve functioning at “entrepreneurial speed.”  

Comprised of MIT founders and teams with new ideas and an itch to dive in fully on their startup ideas – many for the very first time – fuse students receive sophisticated and individualized mentorship from the Trust Center entrepreneurs-in-residence while also relying on the support of their fellow cohort members.  

MIT fuse is all about workshops not lectures, and hard work not homework. It provides students with the chance to see if they like and thrive in the lifestyle of a startup, learning valuable skills including team dynamics, customer acquisition strategies, how to work fast and effectively, and how to pitch your company or idea. 

During fuse, teams create preliminary products and services, talk to customers, and even take part in mock board meetings as a way of teaching them the need to be accountable in achieving their stated goals. All of this results in high-value learning opportunities that help guide the students on the path toward building a company.

FYI – 8 of the 27 teams in last year’s delta v cohort took part in MIT fuse

Looking for technical co-founder to lead payment prototype development

Qullquipu, an offline payment solution for the unbanked at the base of the pyramid, is looking for a Course 6 / EECS major passionate about building gadgets, financial inclusion and being contrarian!

We are looking for someone to help us develop a prototype of a single-purpose, offline, off-chain, contactless, peer-to-peer digital payments device. Why? Tracking the cash flow activities for the unbanked allows them to build –an otherwise unattainable– credit history that will improve their chances to access financial services and break from the poverty cycle.
