A Guide for MIT Students Working Abroad

This workshop is geared to MIT students that will be doing research, teaching and industry internships abroad and will provide an understanding of the role of innovation-driven entrepreneurship in development of vibrant regional economies.

The workshop will take as its starting point the innovation-driven entrepreneurial ecosystems (IDEA Ecosystems) that lie at the heart of many successful regions such as Silicon Valley, Boston/Cambridge, London’s TechCity and Singapore, and examine the perspective of five critical stakeholders: entrepreneurs, risk capital providers, universities, government, and corporations. Students will then be prepared to view their region through this lens, understanding not only the inner-workings of their internship organization but the larger ecosystem within which it exists.
