[1. Dorian Ferlauto] She was amazing to talk to. She had an insight of what she is heading for. Not only as an user/student but also as an industry trend looker, her venture was great. I have seen the hardware accelerators. Often what I see were trade-offs. Inventors can forget about selecting right manufacturers but on the other hand they seem they lost their passion. However, the Britehub has a core right sense of starting the hardware startup and the platform is already experiencing the small batch manufacturing which welcomes the new hardware startups. It was a great lesson.
[2. Field Trip] The field trip to material connexion was great. Always looking at the new materials is great experience. I took the intro to interior design at the college and there was also a field trip to the Washington Design Center in DC. It was great because we could have samples right away. Material Connexion got nice materials to manufacturing which were good. If I can have samples right away from the vendors, it would be much better but I got contacts from the library access, I can send out emails. Great Field Trip!!
