When: Tuesday, November 2 at 6:00pm
Who: Current MIIS students interested in gaining international experience inÂ enterprise development.
This spring, the Monterey InstituteÂ will be sending out students to several frontier markets including Nigeria, Vietnam, Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya to engage in enterprise development and investment for social and economic impact. In addition, students will be enhancing cross-cultural, cross-border, and cross-sector understanding and skills throughout the experience. The Institute has formed strategic partnerships with small businesses and development organizations in these locations to enable students to work directly with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, government officials, and NGO leaders on the ground.
