The goal for the seminar is to engage with leading scholars in Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management. Seminars take place on Mondays from 11:30am – 1:00pm, in the MIT Sloan School of Management, E62- 450 unless otherwise noted.

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. The TIES Seminar will continue to take place in the form of online presentations. Please contact Stephanie Taverna (staverna@mit.edu) if you wish to be added to the mailing list to receive the participation link.

*This Fall, due to changes with the Sloan course schedule, seminar times have been moved to 1:00pm-2:00pm.*
