The Legatum Center at MIT administers a competitive fellowship program for select MIT students who wish to develop innovative businesses that promote prosperity in the developing world.
The program is open to incoming and current MIT graduate students, across all academic and professional disciplines, who are committed to implementing their business plans upon graduation. Over the course of the fellowship year, the Legatum Center provides financial assistance, business plan coaching, specialized seminars, and opportunities for Fellows to engage with leading entrepreneurs, investors, and innovators.
Our approach is intensely practical. Recognizing that even the best innovations can be rendered useless if not distributed effectively, we work closely with our Fellows to design not just innovative products and services, but also workable, affordable, and sustainable business distribution methods.
