MIT Entrepreneurship Center
New Space, New Name!
 

This Thanksgiving, we are grateful for the Trust Family Foundation's generous donation to MIT, part of which allowed for the complete renovation of our physical space, now located in E40-160.
 
To honor this donation, we are changing our name, effective today, to the Martin (1958) Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, a name that honors MIT alumnus Martin Trust (SM '58).
 
With eight group meeting spaces, three phone booths, and plenty of IdeaPaint-coated space to work, countless generations of MIT students will benefit from the reinvigorated Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship.
 
"Now we have a new beginning in the Trust Center," said Professor Ed Roberts, the Trust Center's chair who founded our center in 1990. "It poses a new challenge: what do we do for encores? I believe the future holds the possibility of dramatic increases of what we have accomplished thus far."
 
Martin Trust (SM '58) founded Mast Industries, a contract manufacturer, importer, and distributor of clothing. Mast Industries merged with The Limited Stores (now Limited Brands) in 1978, and Trust served as a board member for Limited until 2003. He currently runs Brandot International, an investment firm which he founded in 2003.
 
We are closed on Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will see you next week with a cornucopia of course listings for IAP and Spring 2012!
 
All the best,
 
The Trust Center Team
