Academic institutions specializing in engineering, business and design can initiate, build, and grow an innovation capacity by starting a REDX club. Students will gain real-life experience, and you will strengthen relationships with the local ecosystem, while addressing big problems. REDX clubs feed innovators and solutions directly into REDX labs. REDX clubs will receive $500/year to support training events.
REDX clubs operate as non-profit organizations. Innovators and their solutions have the opportunity to interact with other REDX clubs and work in REDX labs worldwide. The onboarding process to become a REDX club includes a 10-week course, appointing a board and an academic advisor, establishing a community coalition, and recruiting innovators and mentors. Clubs receive certification directly from Ramesh Raskar, Professor at the MIT Media Lab.
