Friday Lunch & Learn: Food for Thought with Mauricio Miller

Monday, Nov 11, 2019

Friday, November 15, 2019, 12:30 PM  •  Princeton Entrepreneurial Hub

Hosted by Keller Center. More information can be found here

Mauricio Lim Miller, the 2019-2020 James Wei Visiting Professor in Entrepreneurship in the Keller Center, founder of the Family Independence Initiative, and McArthur Fellow, will speak about his evidence-based alternative solution to poverty — to invest in people’s demonstrated strengths, rather than weaknesses. Miller recently launched The Liberia Project, a technology-based initiative to grow the Liberian economy by connecting small-scale entrepreneurs in Liberia with investors within diasporic communities in the United States.

During the spring semester, Miller will teach a course at Princeton titledSpecial Topics in Social Entrepreneurship: Peer-Driven Social Change and Practicum.”  The course will introduce students to Miller’s unique social change model, and as part of the practicum, students will have an opportunity to participate in The Liberia Project.

Lunch will be provided.
