India is one of the world's biggest economies. It also faces enormous economic challenges, including persistent poverty and rising inequality. The Mumbai Center’s activities and projects in this area are currently focused on innovation and entrepreneurship as a pathway toward a future of work that is safe, sustainable, and skilled. We believe that entrepreneurship activity will translate into economic opportunity with appropriate guidance and collaboration. We lend support to research projects and student activities through public events and internships. Our special initiative, the Urban Works Innovation Challenge, serves as an accelerator for startups across a wide range of disciplines and schools including engineering, business, international affairs, and urban planning.
