Entrepreneurial Impact: The Role of MIT

Edward B. Roberts
Charles Eesley
Sloan School of Management
Research- and technology-intensive universities, especially via their entrepreneurial spinoffs, have a dramatic impact on the economies of the United States and its fifty states. A new report on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, indicates conservatively that, if the active companies founded by MIT graduates formed an independent nation, their revenues would make that nation at least the seventeenth-largest economy in the world. A less conservative direct extrapolation of the underlying survey data boosts the numbers to 25,800 currently active companies founded by MIT alumni that employ about 3.3 million people and generate annual world sales of $2 trillion, producing the equivalent of the eleventh-largest economy in the world.

Staying on the Cutting Edge at ICICI Ltd.

Member Testimonials
In the late 1990s, ICICI transformed itself from a long-term lending institution to a diversified financial services company. In the process, the India-based firm started offering Internet banking, online stock trading, e-commerce and technology solutions, and venture capital services for information technology and other startups. But to stay ahead of the curve in these areas, the company would need relevant, up-to-date expertise in technology and management. That’s why ICICI joined the ILP in August 2000. “MIT is a world center for cutting edge research and technology,” says Dr. Mathew Joseph, their deputy general manager. “We felt that MIT and the ILP would contribute to our ability to develop new products and provide superior customer solutions.”

During the nineties, the company established in-depth relationships with the Media Lab, the MIT Program on Internet and Telecoms Convergence, the Sloan School’s Center for e-Business at MIT, and other MIT organizations. By 2000, BT’s R&D arm, BTexact, sought to tap into an even wider base of skills and interests across campus, but wanted to do so systematically.

Igniting New Developments at International Paper

Member Testimonials
The synergies were unmistakable. At the Industrial Liaison Program’s 1998 Research Directors’ Conference, International Paper research and development director Bruce Lyne recognized several links between MIT research activities and potential products and business opportunities for his company. Soon after, International Paper joined the ILP and began to capitalize on those opportunities. ILP-arranged meetings with MIT researchers sparked several joint research projects, new product developments, and consulting relationships with MIT faculty. “Since we joined, the ILP has alerted us to new enabling technologies and introduced us to business concept innovations,” says Lyne.

Boosting Innovation and Public Relations at Telecom Italia

For more than a decade, the Industrial Liaison Program has helped Telecom Italia, Italy’s leading telecommunications provider, track potentially critical technological innovations. Throughout this period, ILP staff has facilitated ongoing and ad hoc meetings between the company’s research and development arm CSELT and MIT researchers. “Telecom Italia has always paid particular attention to universities and innovation centers,” says Roberto Saracco, who directs CSELT’s Communications Area. “But today MIT is the main international one we’re still connected with. They conduct a broad set of research and business-oriented activities relevant to our needs.”
