MIT Enterprise Forum Poland has chosen 23 Polish startups to participate in their acceleration program based on the expertise of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), the best technical university in the world. The selected companies specialize in a wide range of topics and include a system for monitoring the patients at risk of pleural effusion or a pen that automatically digitalizes documents. Startups will receive the support of international mentors and experts, including PKO Polish Bank and Polish Oil and Gas Company.

„This is an enormous chance for small, young and innovative entrepreneurships. Not only will they be able to go through the acceleration process according to the MIT model, but, thanks to the funding received in the Scale Up program, will be able to receive investments of up to 200 000 PLN,” said Paweł Bochniarz, President at MIT Enterpirse Forum Poland.

The MITEF Poland program comprises of four thematic acceleration paths. The “Energy” path is realized with the support of Polish Oil and Gas Company, the “Health” path – with the Adamed Group, and the “Resources” path – with KGHM Cuprum R&D Centre. The last one is called “Let’s fintech with PKO Polish Bank”. Except from these thematic paths, there is also a general acceleration program available. You can find more details about the acceleration program here.
