Founded by a group of Cambridge, MA entrepreneurs from MIT who gathered to critique each other’s business plans, the success led to the establishment of chapters in 28 other cities worldwide. Chapters form around a core group of MIT Alumni, but membership and program participation is open to all. Originally part of the MIT Alumni Association, The MIT Enterprise Forum is now part of MIT Technology Review, an independent media company owned by MIT. The mission of the MIT Enterprise Forum is to inform, connect, and coach technology entrepreneurs—enabling them to rapidly transform ideas into world-changing companies. We are a global network of local organizations, inspired by MIT, and open to the world. Our vision is to build a better world by accelerating the creation and growth of world-class technology companies. An active chapter since 1999, the MIT Enterprise Forum of Atlanta has global reach with local smarts.
