About the project

MIT alumni-founded companies have generated jobs and revenues equal to a medium-sized country. In the current economy, many of them are leading the way in global new job creation that can help in economic recovery.

The goal of the Digital Shingle Project is to document the ongoing global impact of companies whose founders have MIT connections.


The Digital Shingle Project is run by the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, which builds MIT students' capacity for innovation-based entrepreneurship.
