I was fortunate to have visited the MIT campus when I was working at H.P. (Hewlett Packard). We had several projects that we partnered with MIT for computer modeling assistance. It was fun and a rewarding experience to work with the talented students and faculty.

Daniel Andrew is the current CEO of Trademark Tours and was quoted, “We created this public tour of MIT in response to market demand. Over the last decade, in the wake of the tech boom, the profile of MIT and Kendall Square has experienced a renaissance of sorts. More than ever, the phones in our office are ringing with guests eager to learn about the breakthroughs in technology radiating out of this prestigious corner of the scientific universe. We’ve been running fascinating MIT tours for private groups for over five years and decided that now is the time to bring this experience to the general public.”
