Earlier this week, the winner of the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition was announced. Congratulations to team CloudTop for taking home the grand prize!
This year, we sponsored the Thomson Reuters Data Prize, a $10,000 prize awarded to a team for which an innovative use of data is core to their business. The judges decided to award the prize to Janus Data (pictured above) for a, “particularly innovative and impactful approach to data aggregation and analysis.” Well done!
Now in its 22nd year, the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition is a forum for students and researchers in the MIT community to act on their talent, ideas and energy to launch tomorrow’s leading firms. A year-long educational experience, the MIT $100K brings together a network of resources to help participants through the new venture construction process. Learn more about the competition here.
