MIT Enterprise Forum

The MIT Enterprise Forum (MITEF) is a global organization of dedicated professionals with local chapters, affiliated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through MIT Technology Review. We are open to all participants of the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The vision of the MITEF is to build a better world by accelerating the creation and growth of world-class technology companies.

The mission of the MITEF is to inform, connect, and coach technology entrepreneurs enabling them to rapidly transform ideas into world-changing companies.

MITEF Greece

The Greek chapter of MITEF is a non-profit association, established in August 2013 by a group of experienced entrepreneurs and business professionals. The chapter’s founding members decided to bring this global network and its unique resources to Greece because they believe in the potential of the local science and engineering community, value technology entrepreneurship as a growth engine, and understand the challenges startups face. Their goal is to help the Greek technology ecosystem, comprising innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, and investors grow faster and smarter and eventually help turn Greece into a world-class technology hub.

MITEF Greece runs highly curated programs that aim to inform, connect, coach, and accelerate technology entrepreneurs, helping them to transform their ideas into world-changing companies. We focus primarily on technology-driven ventures and we are very interested in helping deep-tech teams emerging from research labs.
