Intellectual capital: Roberts' rules of entrepreneurship

Ed Roberts came to MIT as a teenager -- and never left. To say his time here has been productive would be an understatement. In addition to the four degrees he's earned and decades of teaching and research, this energetic innovator founded and chairs the MIT Entrepreneurship Center and co-founded the Management of Technology Program. His latest accomplishment is the introduction of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program. Fondly known as E&I, this phenomenally popular element of the MBA program leverages the entrepreneurial ecosystem at MIT and brings likeminded entrepreneurs together. Recently Ed spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about his latest curricular innovation, his long journey down the entrepreneurship path, and what he firmly believes makes a great entrepreneur.

Student Stories: Jenny Kwan, MBA '09

Jenny Kwan spent her down time in January going from the E and I Trek in California to an independent research project in China that explored clean energy entrepreneurship. She'll be back in China in March as part of the inaugural ChinaLab and hopes to end up there for good upon graduation. For this driven New Zealander, her goal of successfully marrying her interests in energy, entrepreneurship, and China is very close to being realized.

Energy Entrepreneurship and Innovation: Today's Challenges, Tomorrow's Opportunities

There are ample opportunities for new energy entrepreneurs, these panelists agree, but motivation and certain kinds of know-how play key roles in bringing new ventures to fruition.

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.

Going up? MIT Elevator Pitch Contest

What better way to pitch the value of an elevator pitch contest with an elevator pitch. We certainly thought so, and contest organizer Gaetan Bonhomme obliged.

The Power of Competition: How to Focus the World's Brains on your Innovation Challenges

Cooperation may be making us "a little bit too nice" when it comes to innovation, suggests Fiona Murray. She believes there's nothing like competition for injecting energy into the process of solving key innovation problems, whether in business or society.

Financial Services: Prospect for Your Future

In a lively discussion with Simon Johnson, Lawrence Fish deconstructs the near collapse of the banking system and points out the multiple factors that have contributed to the financial crisis.

13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown

Simon Johnson warns in a new book that a "new financial oligarchy" threatens not only the nation's economy, but its political core. In 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown, Johnson, says the book provides "the back story" for the 2008 financial crisis "and for all the issues being raised now around financial reform.

Challenges to the Global Economy

If economic analyses earned ratings like movies, this event would receive an X for extremely disturbing. Two of the field's most prominent voices spare any sugar coating in their unsettling accounts of the world's unfolding economic crisis.

Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities for Business and Society

If "organizations are the way that ideas change the world," as MIT Sloan Dean Dave Schmittlein puts it, then look to institutions like MIT, which has wrapped its arms around the issues of energy and climate change, to help make sustainability real and attainable. The Dean describes some showcase work launched at MIT, including a long-lasting battery for electric cars, and MIT's own green campus efforts.

Opportunities in Building More Sustainable Supply Chains

When a global corporation implements sustainability standards, it pays to work closely with supply chains, as these panelists attest.

Building the Next Generation Company: Innovation, Talent, Excellence

While the ongoing world economic crisis has left many business leaders sweating (or worse), John Chambers is rolling up his sleeves in anticipation of an eventual recovery. After every economic challenge, he says, Cisco has come out with dramatic gains in market share. This time won't be different, if Chambers' bets pay off.

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.

G-Lab ’10: Intergrupo, Colombia

In Colombia, says Ramy Hakim, MBA ‘10, “everyone tries to be your friend. Everyone is very genuine.” This value on interpersonal relationships was a major takeaway for Hakim and his teammates when they spent time this spring working with Intergrupo, a software company based in Medellin, Colombia. The team was charged with creating a human resource strategy, but the camaraderie they found within the company may be the real success story. Says Hakim, “The friendships you develop in the business place really propel the work you do.” Listen to the podcast.

G-Lab ’10: Warmbath Hospital, South Africa

Witnessing multiple childbirths is not typically part of the business school curriculum. It was, however, an unexpectedly wonderful bonus for the G-Lab students working with South Africa’s Warmbath Hospital maternity ward. On site to collect information for the creation of an improved staffing model, the G-Lab team were also privileged to witness the efforts of the dedicated, if under-resourced staff, including the singing of a morning prayer for new mothers and their infants. Team members Kelsey McCarty and Jean-Nicolas Gagnon and talk about the nurses’ emotional approach to care as well as learning that the answers the team sought could be found only by learning to ask the right questions.

G-Lab ’10: Nam Mee Books, Thailand

Bangkok-based Nam Mee Books has made a name for itself as Thailand’s leading publisher of comics and children’s books, including Harry Potter, but it now faces the challenge of expanding into a broader market. The company’s openness to new ideas and willingness to follow whatever path the G-Lab team they worked with recommended meant more pressure on the team, but also a greater sense of ownership over the company’s future for the team members. Lia Cavalcante and Jeremy Bratt talk about the kind of research was required for such an undertaking and the willingness of their hosts to listen.

Forging Fellowship: Pascal Marmier, SF 2008

As Sr. Advisor of Swissnex Boston, Pascal Marmier, focuses on the high-tech collaboration among Swiss and U.S. scientists, entrepreneurs, and innovators in hopes of achieving climate change. In his time with the MIT Sloan Fellows program, Marmier, SF 2008, advanced his knowledge of sustainability through access to faculty leaders and in his role as co-founder of the MIT Sloan Fellows Social Impact Group. The group -- representing more than 25 countries -- believes that giving back to society is not about self-sacrifice, it's about commitment.

G-Lab ’10: Kampala Family Clinic, Uganda

For Irina Kogan, Emmy Linder, and Anne Reilly, all MBA ’10, flexibility was key when selecting a G-Lab project to work on, and Uganda’s Kampala Family Clinic provided plenty of it. The tradeoff, however, was some extra work to better define both the scope and the deliverables for the project. The for-profit clinic wanted to expand, but was unsure which way to go. One very important lesson that the team imparted to its client: It is important to understand why the organization has been successful in the past before deciding which direction to grow for the future. Listen to the podcast.

Student Stories: Sierra Towers, MBA '09

Set clear expectations on the home front and with your classmates -- and keep an open mind. Those are Sierra Towers' rules for successfully combining motherhood and her management education. She was initially drawn to MIT Sloan by the energy and collaboration she found here, but was also reassured by the insights of other student moms and the resources available for families. Sierra takes time out of her very busy schedule to talk to us about owning a restaurant, her extensive knowledge of beer, and doing her homework with her kids.

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.

2010 $100K Competition Winners: C-Crete Technology

MIT Engineering PhD candidate Rouzbeh Shahsavari and MIT Sloan's own Natanel Barookhian, MBA '10, were recently awarded first prize in the 20th annual MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition. Their startup, C-Crete Technology, has created a nanoengineered concrete that reduces CO2 emissions and is stronger than any other cement currently on the market.

G-Lab '09: Ras Resort, India

The first in a series of podcast exploring MIT Sloan's renowned Global Entrepreneurship Lab (G-Lab) focuses on a marketing challenge in Mumbai, India. A Mumbai-based entrepreneur hopes to capitalize on his belief that tourism in India will be growing--particularly among business travelers--by expanding his hotel business into other cities across the country. It's the job of the MIT Sloan G-Lab team to sift through his ever-shifting ideas and goals and steer him and his business in the right direction. Team members Gerardo Guzman and Karen Bruck (both MBA class of 2009) talk about zeroing in on the project's scope to build their client a solid business plan and the welcome assistance of MIT alumni contacts in India.

Student Stories: Oliseyi Boroffice

Growing up in Nigeria, Seyi witnessed the effects of poverty firsthand. Consequently, the steps he's taken as an adult have been moving toward one goal: alleviating that poverty. As a recent graduate of the MIT Sloan/JFK School of Government dual-degree program, Seyi learned key lessons in how to make business work in the complex, and often insufficient, infrastructure of a developing country. A firm believer that entrepreneurship is essential to creating jobs and eradicating poverty, Seyi is headed back to his native land to put his education and his passion to work. On the eve of his graduation, correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate spoke with Seyi about resisting the lure of big business in the U.S. and his hopes for the future of Nigeria.

In Action: Assured Labor

Assured Labor is the latest start-up to rise out of the notorious entrepreneurial ecosystem of MIT Sloan. The company -- which matches dependable workers with honest employers via mobile phone text messaging -- first came to life when three of its founders met in the School's Developmental Entrepreneurship class. Now, after graduation, the team is pushing full steam ahead to assure the future of Assured Labor. Co-founders Matt Albrecht, Joseph Bamber, and David Reich, talk about what it takes to turn a good idea into a successful business.

Intellectual Capital: Professors Tom Kochan and Paul Osterman on IWER

The Institute for Work and Employment Research (IWER) at MIT Sloan studies issues that are of importance to a great many people—particularly these days. For over 70 years, IWER has explored work and employment issues in both the public and private sectors, and from the perspective of individuals and governments.

Greater Boston’s one thing — Aurélie Thiele

From Xconomy It is a truism in career development that you should only do one thing and do it well. You don’t want to pursue multiple business endeavors—that would scatter your energy. Offer a consistent image to the world. Focus. When I moved back to Cambridge for my sabbatical at MIT, where I earned a doctorate in engineering a decade ago, I thought I knew what to expect. The revitalization of Kendall Square, the Innovation District in South Boston, the new MBTA stop in Somerville, pharmaceutical companies building their new headquarters within walking distance of the Charles River, Google opening an office nearby: I was aware of all these. They were aligned with Greater Boston’s brand as an innovation hub in science and engineering. Left-brain innovation, I call it. For me, that was Greater Boston’s One Thing. But I was most struck, after I came back, by the amount of … Read More »The post Greater Boston’s one thing — Aurélie Thiele appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
