MIT DesignX Selects 2020 Cohort

Ten multi-disciplinary teams join MIT’s design entrepreneurship accelerator.

Congratulations to MSRED 2020 students Natasha Sadikin and Manny Velazco for being accepted into the 2020 MIT DesignX cohort, the entrepreneurship accelerator of MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P).

Seventeen finalists together with dozens of students, faculty, and guests gathered in Studio 10–485 on November 21 and 22 to pitch their ideas to a selection panel drawn largely from outside MIT. The teams included students, researchers, and alumni from across SA+P as well as participants from Sloan and the School of Engineering, the City of Boston, and Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.
