Massachusetts Institute of Technology has always been associated with major scientific and technological breakthroughs. But the breakthroughs alone do not explain the impact that MIT has had on the world. For that we have to look at entrepreneurship, which starts with the "Mens et Manus" (Mind and Hand) slogan on the Great Seal of MIT. For faculty, students, and alumni, MIT is all about making discoveries and inventions and then applying these discoveries and inventions to solve real problems. In a very tangible way, MIT faculty and graduates invent the future, and entrepreneurship—the building of new businesses—is often the road to that future.
A 2009 Kauffman Foundation study entitled "Entrepreneurial Impact: The Role of MIT" reports that the then-active companies founded by MIT graduates employed about 3.3 million people and generated annual world revenues of $2 trillion, producing the equivalent of the eleventh-largest economy in the world. This rich legacy of high-impact companies spans a wide range of industries; recent examples include A123 Systems, Akamai, iRobot, InVivo Therapeutics and Dropbox.
