MIT Startup Exchange (STEX) is an initiative of the Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and is designed to promote partnering between MIT-connected startups and corporate ILP members.
Since its launch in 2015, the STEX initiative has gathered and engaged hundreds of company founders through a series of networking events, industry conferences, and promotional opportunities, and has secured numerous one-on-one meetings with executives from the 200+ ILP member companies.
The STEX website database boasts 1,200 total companies, searchable by number of employees, stage, MIT connection, origin of the technology, location, revenue, and industry. The website also regularly posts “opportunities” for startups under categories such as partnership, knowledge, technology, speaker, conference exhibitor, etc.
STEX publishes a monthly e-newsletter offering full-length company profiles and video interviews with startup founders and executives.
