Join us on Wednesday, October 24th, as we close this year’s edition of InCube together with the organizing team, the MIT Innovation Initiative, the ETH Alumni New England Chapter, and the MIT Club of Boston.

InCube is an entrepreneurial hackathon organized by the ETH Entrepreneur Club in the month of September. Large glass cubes are placed in urban environments and become the home and office space for teams of five student entrepreneurs, who try to tackle a societal challenge with an innovative solution. At MIT, the students worked on reimagining the ambulances of the future.

Four visiting students at MIT from ETH Zurich and EPFL have brought the event to the US, with the MIT team being the first international participants in the competition. Now, a month after the event, we are hosting a closing event reflecting on this new hackathon format, which has created one more connection between ETH and MIT. The evening will feature presentations from the organizing team, their partners at the MIT Innovation Initiative, and the students who lived inside the cube and formed AugMedic.
