Massachusetts Institute of Technology Legatum Fellowships

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Legatum Center seeks entrepreneurs who aspire to have a lasting and positive economic impact on low-income countries by developing their own entrepreneurial ideas and building their own local enterprises. The Center’s approach is intensely practical. Recognizing that even the best innovations can be rendered useless if not distributed effectively, we work closely with our Fellows to design not just innovative products and services, but also workable, affordable, and sustainable business distribution methods.

The Legatum Center at MIT helps make graduate studies a reality for students with entrepreneurial ambitions who wish to work in developing countries. Legatum Fellows benefit from a business development ecosystem which provides valuable networking opportunities, business plan coaching, substantial tuition assistance, classes on entrepreneurship, introductions to investors and training in best practices. Applicants must be accepted into one of MIT’s 37 graduate programs in order to qualify.
