ABOUT MIT-CHIEF
Featured Programs
​Every year, MIT-CHIEF hosts three major events, namely the China Trip (in the summer), the Pitch-to-China Business Plan Contest (starting from April), and the Annual Conference (around November). Besides the three major events, we also offer participants unparalleled opportunities to share knowledge on cutting-edge technologies and gain valuable business insights through lectures, workshops and startup demos all year round.
Founded in 2011 by a group of MIT students, MIT-CHIEF is a not-for-profit student organization registered at MIT. We are committed to promoting intellectual exchanges and collaborations between China and the United States in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.

As one of the largest entrepreneur communities on the East Coast, we strive to connect the most valuable US-based startups with leading investors, strategic partners and market access in China.
Our Startup Community
​MIT-CHIEF is home to hundreds of startups, including Mobvoi (出门问问), Smarking, MorphLab, and Recon Therapeutics. Over the past few years, the total funding raised by startups in the MIT-CHIEF community has exceeded 100 million US dollars.
