Mentorship at MIT’s Legatum Center


The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship provides mentorship for it’s developing entrepreneurial leaders.

During the course of the academic year, our Fellows work with mentors to set achievable milestones and action plans for building their ventures.  Fellows build relationships with mentors who have practice expertise and experience launching and managing a business in a developing country. Mentorship is an important component of the Fellowship program as it supports students in focusing on their entrepreneurial goals as they complete their academic program requirements.

The Legatum Center is one of many MIT entrepreneurship services, many of them offering mentoring services, including MIT VMS and The MIT Sandbox. Mentoring seems to be a key component of MIT’s support for entrepreneurs.

The Legatum Center for Development and Entrepreneurship at MIT is a community hub for students, alumni and faculty who seek to accelerate social and economic progress through innovation-driven entrepreneurship (IDE). The Center was founded in order to demonstrate the power of entrepreneurship to catalyze transformation in society and to improve global wellbeing.
