“Being at MIT puts us at the forefront of world-changing innovations. Take the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI)—the multidisciplinary research underway will transform the next generation of policy design and technology development.

“The students are from all over the world and represent very different industries. But they are all exceptional leaders in their field, and we share a powerful camaraderie. Together, we examine core issues from multiple perspectives and share and test the “tribal practices” of our industries. I can’t emphasize enough how massively important this is to me and my company.”
