MITdesignX Venice is a multi-year open call for ideas co-created by MITdesignX (Boston)
and  SerenDPT, a Venetian benefit company.

MITdesignX seeks people working on challenging ideas with clear vision, passion and a drive to design solutions and launch real ventures: creative innovators dedicated to improving the quality of life in cities and the human environment. 

Every year the 10 best ideas will gain admission to a free accelerator program, conducted by MIT faculty.
