Sustainability, emerging markets and high-tech: An ideal marriage in 2011
Says Alex Green, MBA '12, about his summer internship, "Organizations today must think more globally about the customers they serve and the impact of their products and services."
Alex Green, MBA '12, posted recently to Johnson's Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise site
about his summer internship. He described how the SGE immersion helped him better realize the alignment of sustainability, high-tech business and emerging markets.
An excerpt of Green's post is here:
Johnson's SGE immersion allowed me to explore the relationship between technology and serving social needs as I worked on a consulting project with Grameen Intel. We helped the company, a joint venture between the Grameen Foundation and Intel Corp, create a structured methodology for creating, evaluating, and implementing new products and services that alleviate social needs through the use of technology. The project helped me think about social interactions with technology on an international scale, particularly within emerging and developing markets. MORE
