James M. Patell, Herbert Hoover Professor of Public and Private Management at Stanford's Graduate School of Business, will discuss lessons learned in the development of Entrepreneurial Design for Extreme Affordability, an interdisciplinary project course taught at the Stanford d-school in which graduate students apply design, engineering and business skills to create comprehensive solutions for challenges faced by the world's poor. Now in its ninth year, the course has partnered with 22 organizations in 14 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Projects have ranged from irrigation systems to solar-rechargeable lights to incubators for low birth-weight infants.
