Hard-tech companies face significant hurdles to success, especially in their early stages. For example, these startups typically spend their first few years and first few million dollars just to create the facilities they need to develop their technology. The premise of START.nano is that early access to MIT.nano’s state-of-the-art laboratories can minimize the cost of launching a nascent idea, helping increase the survival rate of promising companies and potentially shortening the time it takes for their innovations to reach the market. For 2021, the primary benefit for the START.nano participants will be discounted access to MIT.nano’s cleanrooms, characterization tools, and other laboratories. MIT.nano’s staff will use this pilot year to explore with the companies what programmatic support START.nano can incorporate to boost the success of hard-tech ventures.
