Class 15.S16 Social Impact @ Scale though Innovation-Driven Entrepreneurship

As part of the Legatum Fellowship Program, Fellows are required to participate in a for-credit class: Impact Ventures 15.S16.

This project based class focuses on the key choices and challenges students will face as entrepreneurial leaders in the developing world. Building on the MIT entrepreneurship curriculum, each class features an entrepreneur who shares a practical perspective on the class topics, followed by a class discussion and a hands-on activity with students. This year, we have engaged over 12 founders, including 6 MIT alumni, from regions including Nairobi, Kenya, Togo, Lagos, Nigeria, Pune, India; and São Paulo, Brazil.
