From our Investment Manager Partners
Work at MIT that inspires me: The attitude of MIT's researchers across the spectrum, the "when" not "if" they solve something, is incredibly motivating.
Book I'd happily read 100 times: None. Too many books, too little time.
Insight from my career: It is easy to get bogged down in the micro details of whatever is the issue of the day. It is important to keep things in perspective and think long term.
Companies I admire: I admire companies that tenaciously pursue excellence. Working at MITIMCo, we get to interact with many such organizations through our partners. Understanding their motivations and strategies is a source of constant learning.
