About MIT Innovation and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

MIT Bootcamps returned to QUT in Brisbane in February 2018 following the highly successful MIT Innovation and Entrepreneurship Bootcamp held in March 2017.

The Queensland Government, through Advance Queensland, has worked with QUT to secure the bootcamp again for 2019.

The week includes lectures led by senior MIT lecturers focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship. The MIT Bootcamp will bring innovators from across the globe to focus on technology-enabled innovation in Queensland’s key sectors including agriculture, mining and environmental management.

MIT Bootcamps are an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
