On Saturday, February 9, the MIT will host “Scaling Development Ventures,” a day-long conference, including a range of speakers working in resource-limited settings around the world. The conference is jointly organized and sponsored by entities such as the acclaimed D-Lab program, MIT Ideas Global Challenge, the MIT Media Lab, the International Development Initiative, and the MIT Public Service Center. It is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
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 will share 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.
