The essays in this collection focus on the theme of Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, as investigated by ten graduate students and Fellows from Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and Stanford University in the three Asia Leadership Treks and seven Asia Leadership Fellowship Tours that took place in 2015. The destina-tions visited by the ninety-four Trekkers and Fellows altogether included eighteen cities in ten countries. In this volume, you will find essays ranging from an analysis of up-and-coming Chinese internet companies to a discussion of race relations in Malaysia, from an examination of Filipino history to a case study of a manufactur-ing start-up in India. The authors tackle complex themes, identifying the many differences among Asian countries, while at the same time finding the links between them. They argue passionately for the benefits of innovation, adaptation, and learning across cultures. Through their writing, which incorporates both scholarly research and personal experience, they eloquently convey the life-changing possibilities of giving and receiving knowledge through exploration, leadership, and public service.
