Part of our mission at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship is to push the bounds of research in entrepreneurship education, the process of innovation, and development of entrepreneurial ecosystems forward. Our award-winning faculty are constantly expanding our understanding of how to build entrepreneurial ecosystems, educate the next generation of entrepreneurs and equip them with the tools to manage and drive innovation. In keeping with our philosophy, “mens et manus”, our faculty spend substantial amounts of time and energy consulting with regions from around the world to advise them in the process of stimulating economic growth through entrepreneurship. This extends into our own communities here in the US as well as at the national level through congressional testimony.
For a list of faculty involved in entrepreneurship research please see Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management.
