Description

Are you interested in learning how to apply business fundamentals to create social impact? Our event series, facilitated by University of Chicago faculty members, is designed to offer research-based insights on topics ranging from market-based mechanisms to large-scale data and machine learning that can be applied to social impact work within education, healthcare, economic development, and more. Participation in this series will be considered for anyone interested in applying for the John Edwardson, ’72, Social New Venture Challenge (SNVC) startup competition.

This session will be led by Professor Baris Ata whose research includes operational issues in the criminal justice system and logistical challenges in the last-mile delivery problems in Africa.
