Real Problem-solving with Technology — Scaling Up Deep Tech To Impact.
In iTeams we shape technology to solve real world problems and invent uncharted paths forward.
Research advances from MIT, Harvard, MGH, US Navy...
Joining iTeams from all 5 MIT Schools, Harvard, BU, ... in a truly cross-discipline endeavor
Conceived as diversified, robust, and scalable organizations
Bloomberg View columnist Barry Ritholtz interviews Luis Perez-Breva.
Team up with peers from all across the Institute and Labs to find a roadmap to scale for actual research breakthroughs
Uncover a problem worth solving and plan a robust scale-up roadmap to a technology organization that solves it.
We'll discuss technology malleability and evaluation, diversification, roadmapping, active de-risking, scale-up, strategy, intellectual property, organization building...
You’ll exchange views with select members from our community (innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, executives, philanthropists, and others) who share our resolve for technology to play a meaningful role in society.
Most other courses conflate innovation and entrepreneurship: "guess a product, learn to pitch it". We don’t. In iTeams, everything is a variable.
We are admittedly skeptical about the ongoing startup fad; we view startups as but one possible means to a loftier end aimed at truly removing obstacles to progress. We care about that end, and we encourage you to explore.
We attack problem solving hands-on. We use and shape technology to solve problems that matter—giving humans superpowers.
We do not constrain the path to impact; we simply expect you to keep an open mind. You’ll learn to innovate for impact anywhere, beginning with whatever resources you have and to communicate meaningfully across disciplinary divides to materialize an innovating agenda.
Our thousand plus alumni have gone on to apply the skills they honed in iTeams in a wide variety of endeavors. Some have joined new companies emerging from their iTeams projects or discovered technologies on their own and later founded new companies.
Others have joined forward-thinking venture development groups in industry and venture capital, or joined technology investment firms, technology strategy firms, and nonprofit organizations committed to finding technologically savvy solutions to some of the world’s most vexing problems.
Still others have gone on to apply the principles underlying iTeams to build a new breed of technology commercialization labs in industry, the military, and academia.
