Leeds City Region was part of Cohort 6 alongside Campania (Italy), Denmark, Guayaquil (Ecuador), Kentucky, Lebanon, Monterrey (Mexico), Oslo and Sydney, which started in October 2018. MIT REAP (Regional Entrepreneurship Acceleration Program) provides opportunities for communities around the world to engage with MIT in an evidence-based, practical approach to strengthening innovation-driven entrepreneurial (IDE) ecosystems.
This is done by translating research insights into practical frameworks, convening stakeholders focused on IDE, and educating regional leaders through team-based interaction to achieve economic and social impact.
Our team was made up of representatives from public and private sector organisations working alongside colleagues from the world of academia.
We are pleased to join the alumni and become one of the 45+ regions all over the world that MIT REAP has helped with their goal to achieve economic and social impact
