Innovation is a global game.

MIT Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program (REAP) has helped over 50 regions worldwide build a common language around innovation, define strategies, and execute initiatives that contribute to their economic growth, job creation, and social progress.

Discover the role you and your organization can play in your regional innovation ecosystem. Join MIT REAP and our influential network of ecosystem leaders from government, corporate, academia, venture capital, and the entrepreneurship ecosystem to achieve your goals.


MIT REAP provides regions with a clear set of metrics and evaluation methods for them to develop and measure the state of their innovation ecosystem. It also equips regions with tools and insights they need to strengthen and accelerate their innovation-drive entrepreneurial ecosystems.

High Impact

By working in multi-stakeholder regional teams, regions can focus on collective action and impact rather than the perspective of a single stakeholder. Working with MIT faculty, regions develop unique insights and plans to foster economic growth, social progress, and job creation.

Proven in 50+ regions

Since 2012, MIT REAP has engaged over 50 regions worldwide. Regional teams have released actionable strategic plans for entrepreneurial acceleration, catalyzed the development of nascent entrepreneurial ecosystems, and launched new IDE acceleration programs.
