MI-100 is an IFI initiative that promotes entrepreneurship.
IIT alumni play the role of investors, mentors, consultants and employees in startup companies. The goal here is to identify 100 startups where IIT alumni are engaged. We believe that this will become a sustainable model once the tipping point of 100 startups is reached. MI-100 stands for IIT Alumni Canada's Mission to promote 100 startups.
