MIT Digital Shingle Project

Every year hundreds of MIT graduates “hang out their shingle" and start companies from the ideas, technology, and skills they gain from MIT, resulting in 200 to 400 businesses started annually.

The MIT Digital Shingle Project celebrates this success through an online experience where you can browse companies, read statistics and be inspired by their stories.
