The Legatum Convergence, presented by the Legatum Center at MIT, is the global forum on entrepreneurship in emerging markets. Every year, aspiring and established entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, academics and others interested in entrepreneurship and bottom-up development convene at this marketplace of ideas.
Increasingly, entrepreneurship is being recognized for its role in creating prosperity and fostering good governance around the world.
