Description

Dr. Edward Roberts is an Angel Investor at Ed Roberts. Dr. Roberts served as a Professor of Management Technology at MIT Delta V. He is the Founder and chair of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He is an expert in advanced technology management and entrepreneurship, a serial high-tech entrepreneur, and a leading angel investor.

In 1990 he founded the MIT Entrepreneurship Center (now renamed the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship), which he has since chaired. He was a founder of MIT Sloan's Management of Technological Innovation and Entrepreneurship Group, which he chaired for more than 30 years. During the 1970s Professor Roberts co-founded multiple MIT programs in health care delivery, including an interdisciplinary PhD program in Health Policy and Management. During that time he co-directed MIT's extensive collaboration in management and organizational development with the Association of American Medical Colleges. In 1980 Roberts co-founded and chaired for nearly 20 years, the mid-career MIT Management of Technology (MOT) Program, MIT's first advanced degree program offered by two Schools. Most recently, in 2006 he co-created and still chairs the MIT Sloan Entrepreneurship & Innovation MBA Track. Roberts holds four degrees from MIT: an SB and SM in electrical engineering, an SM in management, and a PhD in economics.
