Legatum Fellows bring innovation to emerging markets

Legatum Center

For more than 150 years, MIT has been lauded for educating innovators and entrepreneurs. Many of these pioneers have launched their ventures in developed countries. But in recent years a new trend has emerged, as an increasing number of MIT innovators and entrepreneurs are now working in the emerging economies of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This trend is exemplified by the Fellows at the Legatum Center, which serves students from all five MIT schools who wish to be entrepreneurs in low-income countries.
