Celebrating Development Innovations @ MIT

This coming Tuesday 12/11/07, I'm running an informal end-of-semester International Development reception at MIT.

We will serve up a buffet of tasty morsels, both veggie and carne. Our goal is to help connect people from throughout our greater-Cambridge global development community and to especially spotlight emerging opportunities in the upcoming Spring Semester.

Joining us will be members of several project teams from Fall Semester 2007 development-related courses including Digital Innovations, Developmental Entrepreneurship, D-Labs, and more. Also invited are the leaders and membership of TechLink, SEID, GSW, GPI, AfricaBusinessClub, NetImpact, and other clubs, as well as organizers & participants in the IDEAS and the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competitions and the International Development Network (IDN) at MIT. Finally, the instructors & organizers of several key IAP & Spring 2008 development-related seminars at Harvard & MIT will join us, specifically people representing ICT for Development, Global Health Delivery, Wheelchair Design, Water & Sanitation, Prosthetics Design & Development, Projects for Change, Nuts & Bolts of Business Plans, D-Labs, Responsive Cities, and more.

Quite cool!
