MITdesignX selects 2020 cohort

MIT Media Lab

Ten teams seeking to launch highly innovative ventures ranging from technology to connect bicyclists in safety “swarms”, to bespoke classrooms-in-a-box, to reimagined retail solutions for transit stations have been selected for the 2020 cohort at MITdesignX, the entrepreneurship accelerator of MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P).

Seventeen finalists together with dozens of students, faculty, and guests gathered in Studio 10–485 on November 21 and 22 to pitch their ideas to a selection panel drawn largely from outside MIT. The teams included students, researchers, and alumni from across SA+P as well as participants from Sloan and the School of Engineering, the City of Boston, and Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
