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. Two weeks on the ground in Bangalore gave the team insight into the impact a country and a culture can have on a business, and gave them the information they needed to come down in favor of expansion.

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.

Running business as if the future matters — Barbara Dyer

From The Case Foundation The Long Now Foundation’s Interval Café is a place for conversation about long-term thinking. Nestled in a concrete warehouse at San Francisco’s historic Fort Mason, the Interval was a fitting watering hole for the nearly 2,500 participants in the recent Social Capital Markets (SOCAP) gathering. SOCAP’s annual pilgrimage to Fort Mason brought together innovators, investors, foundations and social entrepreneurs to “build a world we want to leave to future generations.” But drive an hour south from Fort Mason to Silicon Valley and you’ll be reminded that short-termism is deeply embedded in our business culture. This epicenter of tech start-ups is defined by a business development norm of launch, scale and exit. Investors are more likely to ask, “What’s your exit strategy?” than “What’s your long-term vision?” Today’s young business leaders came of age in the era of “short-termism” where companies enter and exit in five to ten year cycles and compete … Read More »The post Running business as if the future matters — Barbara Dyer appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
