An introduction and a hello.

katemyttyHello! I’m Kate Mytty, the newest addition to the MIT Public Service Center team. I’m joining Lars in the building and growing of Global Challenge and managing the IDEAS Competition. You’ll see me here talking about what’s going on at MIT, with the Global Challenge, international development and all things related.

To give you a bit of an idea of who I am: I’m from Nebraska, lived in Wisconsin for eight years and then moved out to Boston. When I’m not here, you can find me exploring the world by foot or bicycle, reading every book I can, and starting various ideas. My previous experience in the publishing world and at a small consulting firm, gave me a strong background in the ideas shaping the future of business and how to communicate and start a dialogue around those ideas.

Which brings me back to here. What excites me about being amongst you, is a common passion for social entrepreneurship — the development of ideas that benefit and help improve the lives of others. Here on the blog, I’ll continue to build on what Lars has started; I’ll help share the ideas we run across on a daily basis, the people behind those ideas, the debates we encounter and what we’re learning as a result. As we go along, I’d love to hear from you — what you’re seeing, what you’re finding, and who you are. Please say hello.

(Also — if you’re on twitter, join me here.)
