Anyone who runs a venture in a low- or middle-income country knows about complexities of achieving scale. This is an opportunity to explore strategies, models and resources that will help development ventures as they grow.
Our speakers have forged a path in this space and shared success stories to inspire and lessons learned to inform. They come from a variety of industries and operate in markets across the globe, like India, Brazil, Ghana, Indonesia and Tanzania.
In addition, nine rising MIT teams introduced their ventures and discuss their efforts to date. You can meet teams here. As an attendee, there was time to broaden networks, share what you know and learn from applied wisdom.
- Members of the MIT community that are interested in learning more about this area
- Individuals beyond the MIT community working in the field who want to broaden their knowledge and network
- Teams led by MIT students, faculty and staff that are working to scale their social impact endeavor.
