GFSA takes the best teams from MIT that have an interesting idea or proof of concept focused on creating high impact, innovation-driven startups. Teams are chosen from across MIT’s schools as well from select global university partners to participate in a rigorous, mentor intensive accelerator program from June-September. GFSA provides founders with the knowledge, resources, mentoring and peer community that is proven to develop skills for entrepreneurs and accelerate their early stage startups. We help them achieve the escape velocity they need to make the leap from the dorm room to the board room.

The accelerator, a joint project of all five MIT schools, offers:
- Up to $20,000, equity free
- Monthly fellowship to support full time founders
- Dedicated desk space at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship
- Personalized, intensive mentoring from successful entrepreneurs, and faculty that are the best in their fields.
