Welcome to the Spring 2016
MIT Sloan Alumni Magazine
In this issue, we complete our three-part series of themed topics, focusing on the faculty, alumni, and students who are bringing their ideas to life around the world. Their inspiring stories illustrate how MIT Sloan encourages and equips students to bring their ideas to the global marketplace.
Our students are taking on complex global challenges with zest and creativity. Lisa Tacoronte, SB ’10, MBA ’17, who co-founded Global Cycle Solutions with MIT classmate Jodie Wu, SB ’09, to distribute low-cost technology in Africa, is already thinking about new ideas for mission-driven startups. Stephanie Speirs, MBA ’17, who before coming to MIT Sloan served as a policy director at the National Security Council, has recently founded Solstice, a nonprofit focused on bringing solar energy to underserved communities in the United States.
