What we are looking for

The most successful Bootcampers have the following qualities:

  • Capacity for Calculated Risk: Success happens when preparation meets opportunity. But seizing new opportunities comes with an inescapable amount of risk. We look for applicants who are confident and calculated risk takers, and can weigh when it makes sense to embark on a new venture, pivot, or start anew.
  • Open and Critical Thinking: Developing your venture will require collaboration and openness to new ideas. We look for individuals with an ability to combine critical thinking with an open mind.
  • Focus on Community: At MIT we believe that the team is more important than the idea. Great teams make amazing companies and can turn average ideas into life-changing innovations. Ideal candidates will put the team above themselves, and have a strong track record of contributing to their community.
  • Initiative with Follow-Through: Anyone can start a new venture, but what separates the thriving businesses from those that fail is follow-through. We looks for applicants that start new ventures, but will follow-through even when the going gets tough.
