t=0: MIT’s campus-wide festival of entrepreneurship and innovation
September 9 – 15, 2017

MIT is known worldwide for innovation and entrepreneurship. t=0 is a festive week that brings together student clubs, departments, and startups to showcase innovation and entrepreneurship in multiple sectors.

In true MIT parlance, students recognize that t=0 means “the time is now,” a way of showing there is no better time than the present to get involved with the myriad organizations and activities devoted to entrepreneurship across campus.
