“My experience with the Trust Center has been amazing. Our City Science lab generates many ideas that could potentially lead to viable startups. We build prototypes, file patents, and test innovation in the wild through living lab experiments, but securing venture funding, developing business plans, and creating marketing strategies is not our strength.
Being able to work with such a collaborative and neutral party resource as the Trust Center has allowed us to focus on what we do best, while creating opportunities for graduating students to learn the art of entrepreneurship. Access to the amazing people at the Trust Center is what helps make MIT so wonderful and unique .”
Kent Larson, Director of the City Science (formerly Changing Places) group at the MIT Media Lab
