MIT’s New Accelerator Will Support Entrepreneurs Building Social Impact Tech

Starting a tech company is fairly easy now, if “tech” means yet another app. But the kind of technology needed to solve the world’s biggest problems—whether it’s low-cost water purification, nanoscale robots that can perform safer surgeries, or meltdown-proof nuclear reactors—tends to require more resources than an entrepreneur would have in the garage.

A new Boston-area accelerator called The Engine, launched by MIT, aims to solve this problem, supporting entrepreneurs working on the most complicated new technology.
