GSB Alumni Relations

Please join fellow Stanford alumni to hear from visiting faculty Jesper Sorensen, Director, Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED):

How can Stanford contribute to economic growth and prosperity in some of the poorest places in the world? This session will introduce you to the Seed Transformation Program (STP), which aims to enable CEOs/founders in developing and emerging economies to lead their regions to greater prosperity. Currently operating in West Africa, East Africa, Southern Africa and India, the STP offers opportunities for Stanford faculty, students and alumni to engage with and learn from dynamic business leaders working in challenging environments. We will discuss the STP model and its impact, lessons learned, and opportunities for engagement.
