How We Achieve Our Purpose

Who We Impact

We engage all stakeholders in the entrepreneurial ecosystem as part of our efforts to support technology entrepreneurs.

  • MITEF understands that others in the entrepreneurial ecosystem can affect an entrepreneur’s success, including other entrepreneurs, incubators, investors, industry leaders, service providers, associations, and government programs.
  • Although MITEF strives to provide value to entrepreneurs across their startups’ lifecycles, MITEF’s greatest impact is in accelerating the success of early-stage companies—as early as concept stage and pre-seed, but prior to significant institutional funding.
  • MITEF sees technology entrepreneurs as innovators who transform technological capabilities into realworld commercial enterprises, therefore providing value to their customers.
