Nurturing a Vibrant Culture to Drive Innovation

Terri Kelly provides insights into the W.L. Gore Company, and explains its unique culture that encourages experimentation, risk taking and taking the long view.

Deep dive into India

Ploy Jensen had been to India before. But her visit to the Taj Mahal and other tourist stops were hardly a precursor to the deep dive into India's emerging technology market and diverse culture that she experienced as part of her Global Entrepreneurship Lab class. Working with a venture capital firm, she and her G-Lab teammates spent time at MIT Sloan last fall analyzing investment considerations for the firm's new Indian startup fund. Their efforts culminated in a trip to India in January that shed new light on their analysis, imbued her with respect for the intelligence and determination of the Indian people, and left her with vivid memories. Jensen, a 2007 MBA student, recounts her G-Lab experience and how it fits into her MIT Sloan education.

Student Stories: Matt Weiss, MBA '07

While in the process of applying to business school, he and a partner got a business up and running. Figuring that it was the perfect time to deepen his marketing and strategy skills, Matt Weiss left the business in the care of his partner and fully immersed himself in the entrepreneurial culture of MIT Sloan. While earning his MBA, Matt also kept time as the drummer for the student band, The Rolling Sloanes. And he timed his wedding to occur one week after graduation, giving the newlyweds plenty of time for a summer honeymoon in Australia. Prior to his graduation and his nuptials, Matt talked with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about bridging the gap between marketing and technology, his fondness for the marketing club, and the special camaraderie that exists between Sloanies.

India Lab 2009: Bangalore

Katie Barrett and her fellow MBA 2010 teammates spent four months working with Bangalore-based Adea, an IT solutions company, toward possible expansion into the Boston market.

G-Lab ’10: Mercy Corps, Jakarta

In Jakarta, Indonesia, street carts are a major source of food for children. In their efforts to combat childhood malnutrition, the Mercy Corps organization is trying to insure that such street carts offer healthy options for their young customers. With a well-run pilot program in place, Mercy Corps brought an MIT Sloan G-Lab team to the table to learn how to maximize their efforts and expand their business. The team spent several weeks in Jakarta, gaining valuable insights about the culture of the city and the conditions of the neighborhoods in which the food carts were operating. In the end, the team was able to provide Mercy Corp with the tools necessary to grow their business and advance their mission.

MIT MBA students tour Silicon Valley as tech campuses expand — Shany Alon

From Xconomy It’s easy to catch the technology bug. After all, tech companies are pretty much everywhere. I became hooked when I worked as an IT consultant at Accenture after college, and plan to work at a technology company after I finish my MBA. So when I had the opportunity to participate in a Technology Trek at MIT, I jumped at the chance of visiting some of the leading market players recognized globally for their entrepreneurial and technological innovation. I was very curious about what it’s like to work at a larger technology company, especially big ones with more resources like Facebook and Google. What is their culture really like? What kind of impact can a recent MBA graduate make? During our Technology Trek last week with 27 other MIT Sloan MBA students, I was able to get some answers. First up was Google’s Mountain View campus. I had never seen it before, … Read More »The post MIT MBA students tour Silicon Valley as tech campuses expand — Shany Alon appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
