Developmental Entrepreneurship @ MIT Wheelchair Class

I really enjoyed visiting Amos Winter's MIT Wheelchair Design in Developing Countries (WDDC) class yesterday to speak about the related realm of Developmental Entrepreneurship -- i.e. figuring out the business model for deploying key innovations everywhere in an economically viable fashion. Over 20 Million people need mobility solutions in developing countries. Perhaps an order of magnitude more need independence and other A.B.L.E. technologies. This is a hugely important realm of emergent innovation & entrepreneurship.
