In this episode, we feature an interview with Jesus Lares, an alumni of the Trust Center's delta v and MIT Fuse programs. Lares is a recent MIT undergrad who passed on a job at Google to found Eraverse, a company designing custom locations in the metaverse where far-flung participants can collaborate on projects.

He says he never imagined he would work in the entrepreneurship space when he entered MIT as an aerospace engineering major. But, his intensive engagement with the Trust Center's delta v and Fuse programs helped him decide to pursue building a company full-time after graduating.

Conducting the interview is Paul Cheek, the executive director of the Trust Center and one of Lares's advisors during undergrad.
