Trust Center ~ MIT Sloan Entrepreneurship Home

Very exciting to see MIT alumnus Martin Trust '58 step up with a US$10 Million gift to name the MIT Sloan-based Entrepreneurship Center! While both organizationally and physically based on the far eastern-end of campus at the management school at MIT, this Center seeks to serve students from all parts of the Institute. Hosting many of MIT's key entrepreneurship classes and clubs, the Trust Center collaborates with us at the Media Lab and other parts of MIT to properly support our venture-minded students! P.S. While I'm really delighted about the new Trust Center nomenclature, it's also bittersweet since I was the guy who renamed the then-MIT Venture Initiative -- something previously known as the regretably stillborn MIT Center for Entrepreneurship -- and decided to call it the MIT Entrepreneurship Center all the way back in 1995, when yours truly was running the now MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition!
