The goal for the seminar is to engage with leading scholars in Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management. Even in the current challenging circumstances, the seminar remains committed to advancing the research and teaching mission of TIES as well as the broader MIT community. Please contact Stephanie Taverna (staverna@mit.edu) if you wish to be added to the mailing list to receive updates.

The seminar will be in person, and has returned to its previously scheduled time and place: 11:30-1:00, room E62-450.
