  • If you’re interested in/already doing and thinking about starting work in Social impact; Development;International Development;Humanitarian Work, we’re one of the pieces of that ecosystem here at MIT. Our specific focus is – innovation as public service. We support new projects through an annual competition.
  • Those projects cover many areas and regions around the world. IDEAS teams have worked in 28 countries – nearly 65 percent of them being in three regions: the Himalayas, Africa, and Central and South America. Our goal: give the seed money and support network to help hone ideas and get them off the ground.
