Outcomes of MITGSW 2016

“Once again this year, the MIT student-run Global Startup Workshop, also called GSW, has been a great success.  The Alumni Association has been involved throughout the year of preparation and I am excited to share three main contributions and lessons learned.

i. MIT GSW successfully set an example of MIT’s global leadership in innovation by bringing the entrepreneurial spirit of MIT and its alumni to Hyderabad – upcoming startup hub of India.

ii. MIT GSW led and facilitated the conversation around all aspects of entrepreneurial ecosystem in India by bringing all stakeholders under one roof including the government, private sector, entrepreneurs, students and mentors.

iii. MIT GSW remains a unique leadership opportunity for our students coordinating all aspects of the world-class workshop. This year, PhD candidate Alexandre Guion and MBA student Mili Shah have demonstrated outstanding leadership in navigating the foreign, complex and rapidly-changing ecosystem in India.

After attending GSW for the first time this year, I am convinced of its value and mission in fostering entrepreneurship, inspiring future innovators, and building entrepreneurial ecosystems globally.”
