Get Launched with Microchip and the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering


8 June 2017
UC San Diego
La Jolla, CA

I was invited by Microchip to participate in their first "Get Launched with the Freedom to Innovate" in partnership with the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.  It was a conference for professionals as well as UCSD engineering students with continuous workshops and demonstrations relating to launching your hardware project in the real marketplace.  I displayed my Qduino Mini with the B & W Photo Booth project, and later participated in a panel discussion moderated by Microchip's Sneha Murali with the topic of " Unleashing Entrepreneurship & Innovation."  It was an impressive group of senior engineers, venture capitalists, and successful CEOs, and I discussed my experience with my Kickstarter.    I also got to check out UCSD and meet students and faculty of the electrical engineering department which was  very worthwhile.


We were in the beautiful Jacobs Hall at UCSD.

The marcom team from Microchip did a great job!
