This session is part of MIT Startup Exchange Sales Training, a series of complimentary learning sessions designed for the Exchange’s startups and entrepreneurs.
On top of “business-as-usual”, company leaders must face very complex and uncertain geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges, particularly for global companies. Some of the macroeconomic uncertainties these leaders have to overcome are inflation, rising interest rates, and fear of recession. Businesses also have to deal with the diversification of its supply chains and potential relocation of manufacturing plants, energy supply restrictions and cybersecurity risks, while reaching its business, equity and sustainability goals.
Join us to hear from MIT faculty and MIT Startup Exchange entrepreneurs to learn about their views on how to deal with some of these pressing issues, lead creatively and innovate in times of uncertainty.
MIT Startup Exchange is convening a MIT Startup Exchange Demo Day on Wednesday, December 7, 2022. (12 PM – 1:15 PM ET)

Autonomous systems such as robots, drones, and autonomous vehicles are increasingly becoming a common element of human society. However, how to make autonomous systems more intelligent, more efficient, safer, and better aligned with human values remains to be a big challenge. The MIT Schwarzman College of Computing invests in new artificial intelligence, data science, and computer science research to advance the state of the art in autonomous systems. The 2023 MIT AI and Autonomy Conference will showcase the most recent developments in areas including networked robotics, human level perception, reinforcement learning, and computational cognitive science. Presented by the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing and the MIT Industrial Liaison Program, you will hear insights from MIT faculty, MIT Startup Exchange entrepreneurs, and industry executives from presentations, lightning talks, exhibitions, and a panel discussion.
