SU's SEED ~ $150M for Development Innovations

Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies just launched, enabled by a $150M gift from Dorothy and Robert King...
"Known informally as SEED, [the Institute] seeks to stimulate, develop, and disseminate research and innovations that enable entrepreneurs, managers, and leaders to alleviate poverty in developing economies. SEED's work is based on the belief that a critical route for economic growth is through the creation of entrepreneurial ventures and by scaling existing enterprises."

Convinced that poverty alleviation comes through creative technology and entrepreneurship? It's started already at technologyexchangelab.org, a no-frills 501c3 run by volunteers and (mostly MIT) students. Searching for an effective, low-cost solution? Have a high-impact innovation? People, problems, ideas welcome at www.technologyexchangelab.org!
