A prestigiosa premiação do MIT Technology Review acontece pela segunda vez no Brasil. Os candidatos interessados em participar da premiação podem inscrever seus projetos até o dia 27 de agosto. 

Nosso objetivo é identificar talentos em mercados nacionais, como afirma Kathleen Kennedy, presidente do MIT Technology Review e MIT Enterprise Forum: 
"A tecnologia muda tão rapidamente, e ideias interessantes estão surgindo em diferentes regiões do mundo. E nós queremos mostrar o que está acontecendo nessas regiões com a premiação, reconhecer o talento e trabalho desses jovens em matéria de inovação."

Dear Colleagues,
I would like to congratulate our group of volunteers who helped organize the Get Together With Rod Garcia + MIT Summer Send Off Event. The event took place last Saturday and it was a success!

We were able to bring together many alumni, recent admits to the MBA Program and one undergrad admit – Felipe Hofmann – whose story deserves to be mentioned.
Felipe was born in a needy family in Southern Brazil, in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul. They could not afford his education at MIT, so he started a crowdfunding initiative that collected insufficient funds for him to go to MIT.

When I heard this story and learned that his education at MIT was at risk, I communicated with our group of volunteers, and the response was amazing. In less than one week, our additional fundraising spree accomplished its goal and Felipe’s attendance to MIT is guaranteed.
We also sponsored his coming to the event, and he spent the night in my place, so that he could tell his story to us in person. By the way, he did a great job during the event, helping with the badges and other materials kindly sent by the MIT Alumni Association.

He didn’t shy away from telling his touching story to some 40+ people present in the event, acknowledging the help of our community.

Please, find some photos of the event below and additional photos in the following link:
Best regards,
Ricardo Betti
President – MIT & MIT Sloan Alumni Club of Brazil

​Last April 27th, the MIT Sloan Brazilian Club organized a welcome dinner at Ráscal Itaim, to celebrate the admissions of the largest group of Brazilians at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

​In total 20 students were admitted for the 2-year program and 12 for the Sloan Fellows program.

As usual, the event counted with the presence of many alumni from several past classes (from 1986 to 2014), to welcome the new students and exchange experiences.

Greetings From Cambridge! 

The combined economies of Latin America and China are about half of the GDP of the United States.  That is a significantly large amount of demand and production, and here at MIT Sloan we think that more cooperation between the two regions will benefit them – and the global economy - tremendously.

This is why we are hosting the MIT Sloan Latin America-China Conference being held in São Paulo on Friday, August 29th (less than two weeks away!).

Other MIT Professors and I will join a stellar line up of presenters, who come from academia, and who are practitioners and policy makers, to talk about these two regions in depth. Among other topics, we will explore the prospects and challenges for economic growth.
This will be the first conference we are organizing in what we hope will become a series of annual conferences on this topic.  It is also a reflection of MIT’s commitment to being more engaged in Latin America – but this engagement also depends on you, our alumni, in order to be successful.

By attending you will be continuing your MIT education and helping the school to build deeper relationships and research in your region.

To register, please go to

I look forward to seeing you in São Paulo on Friday, August 29th.
Best wishes,
Roberto Rigobon
