MIT REAP is a powerful global initiative that engages with communities around the world to supercharge IDE ecosystems and transform economies with two programs, Global and Focus. Both programs employ an evidence-based “team” approach, translating MIT frameworks, research and insights into practical, actionable, and strategic interventions, convening and educating key stakeholders, and empowering regional leaders to drive meaningful, long-term economic and social progress.

The Focus program is unique in that it works with teams within a single region to employ a more targeted acceleration model, distinct from Global cohorts, and with a bespoke timeframe and optional native language offering.
