Matt Ritter ~ Olin's Sustainability Ventures Senior!

I was delighted to interview Matt Ritter on MaximizingProgress.tv today. Matt shared his experiences over the years in a growing suite of sustainability + innovation + entrepreneurship projects. In fact we know each other from back when he just finished Freshman year at Olin College and collaborated with MIT and other students on the Vehicle Design Summit. Since then he's worked with the MIT Solar 7 house project, on Raw Solar startup team, at the Media Lab's Lifelong Kindergarten group, and most recently with UrgentVC, an advisory and investment group specializing in sustainable cities! Great experiences. Plus Matt shared with us a bit about what Olin is like -- it's a "startup" engineering college (which is a really rare thing) and so I personally found that dimension quite fascinating as well.
