The MIT Creative Arts Competition is an annual contest designed to encourage arts-focused startups at the Institute. The $15,000 prize is offered as a grant to help launch the winning enterprise and enable the recipient(s) to join the ranks of MIT’s successful startup founders.
Alumni are invited to mentor current students working to establish their own arts-focused start up business and also to attend the live pitch event in May, which is when the winners are selected from the finalists and awarded prizes. The distinguished panel of jurors and team of mentors includes alumni entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders in the arts.
To get involved as a mentor, contact Shannon Rose McAuliffe, Manager of Student Arts Programs
