University of Michigan undergrads interested in learning more about social entrepreneurship and design thinking.
The film follows Stanford University students as they create products that could save the lives of people in Bangladesh and Indonesia as part of a course called “Design for Extreme Affordability”.
U-M Undergraduate students who attend will learn about an innovative opportunity to participate in a similar program being offered by the William Davidson Institute. The MENA (Middle East & North Africa) Michigan Initiative for Global Action Through Entrepreneurship (M²GATE) is open to any undergraduate / post-secondary student. During the eight-week program, U-M undergraduates and students from Egypt, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia will collaborate virtually to brainstorm entrepreneurial solutions to social challenges facing each region. In the process, students will learn how to work as a diverse team, collaborate with mentors and build bridges between cultures. Learn more about M²GATE here.
