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.
