On what’s now part of Stanford University campus, he set up a series of cameras triggered by trip wires to snap a quick series of shots as Stanford’s...

Stanford businsess school
As the world population exceeded 7 billion by the end of 2011, various agencies working to alleviate poverty had come to a general consensus that pure charity was not a sustainable solution. In the absence of venture capital and angel investors in developing markets, Microfinance (MF) was one of the most promising tools in the fight against poverty. MF institutions tended to focus on micro-lending, providing small loans to micro-entrepreneurs from which interest could be earned. This case det...

It’s remarkable how often the theme of balance comes up at Stanford GSB — but not always where you might think. When Tony Blair visited last year, he described how he learned to weigh the day’s must-dos with the need to take time to think strategically.
