MIT D-Lab works with people around the world to develop and advance collaborative approaches and practical solutions to global poverty. D-Lab supports small and growing business through two programs: the MIT D-Lab Scale-Ups Fellowship, and a newly-created innovation ecosystems fellowship. The MIT D-Lab Scale-Ups Fellowship offers one year of support to social entrepreneurs bringing hardware-based, poverty-alleviating products and services to market at scale. Alumni of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the International Development Design Summit are eligible to apply. Scale-Ups Fellows receive a $20,000 grant, a tailored set of assigned mentors, skills-building, an annual conference, webinars, tailored resources, and networking opportunities. In 2018, MIT D-Lab will build upon experience from its International Development Innovation Network ( program to pilot a new fellowship focused on innovation ecosystems. This pioneering program will enable ecosystem builders across the globe to start and strengthen initiatives, providing more localized support and a stronger enabling environment to the innovators in their communities.
