Argencon welcomed MIT Sloan Global Entrepreneurship Lab students in Argentina

Argencon organized a gathering dedicated to the students from the MIT Sloan Global Entrepreneurship Lab who are visiting Argentina in a working experience jointly with top-level startups. The venue was the offices of gA (Grupo Assa), and gathered national companies leaders in the production of Knowledge-Based Services. 

"The MIT is one of the world’s most significant sources of innovation in digital economy. We went there in November 2017", explained Luis Galeazzi, Executive Director of Argencon. "This is an event framed within Argencon’s policy of showing Argentina’s capacity to the world, and to establish relationships between the world and Argentine developments: companies and entrepreneurs having the capacity of exporting quality knowledge services."

The MIT Sloan School of Management is one of the world’s leading business schools, that since 2000 –through the Global Entrepreneurship Lab (G-Lab)- organized trips for its students to work with more than 375 startups, located in more than 50 markets worldwide.

MIT Sloan Global Entrepreneurship Lab students who are concluding their work with Argentine companies have witnessed the talent and entrepreneurship of the country. The purpose of the gathering was to make known Argentina’s position in the global map of the export of Knowledge-Based Services, and that they become familiar with the companies that make up Argencon through the presentation of different success cases, such as those of Belatrix, Parabolt and EY.

"We have wide experience working with the entrepreneurs’ system of Argentina, particularly in Buenos Aires”, said Michellana Y. Jester, Global Economics and Management Group of the MIT Sloan School of Management. "G-Lab started in 2000, and we usually have teams working in Argentina. It is a very popular location for our students.”

In this opportunity, the Argentine companies selected by the Business School MIT Sloan were Conexia, Megatlon, Satellogic, Trocafone and Wolox, and thus the almost 20 students currently in the country are conducting their practices at these companies.

"It is very good that MIT students come to Argentina, analyze the cases and provide their vision of where they are going, and leverage their experience to develop new initiatives and grow in the digital world," said Carlos Pallotti, Deputy-Secretary of Technological and Productive Services of the Nation, present in the event.

Also, Daniel Tricarico, Executive Director of the Asociación de Emprendedores de Argentina (ASEA), gave a speech to the MIT students: "It seems to me a very interesting initiative being able to bring people with an international mindset and mix them with what is happening with local culture. Specially the exchange through experience.”
