This week’s episode of Why Not Change the World? The RPI Podcast features insights on entrepreneurship from accomplished alumni of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
The Severino Center for Technological Entrepreneurship at the Lally School of Management offers a management course called Impactful Innovators that brings in a successful former Rensselaer student to speak to the class each week.
In this special episode of the podcast, we hear from a few of the invited guests.
Eben Bayer, a 2007 graduate of Rensselaer, is now the cofounder and CEO of Ecovative Design, a biotech company creating materials with mycelium. Patrice Milos, a 1982 graduate of Rensselaer, is the vice president of scientific operations at Pine Trees Health, a biotech startup. Brent Solina, who graduated from Rensselaer in 2012, is now the founder and CTO of MICROrganic Technologies, a green energy company specializing in microbial fuel cell production.
They each share experiences and lessons learned from their entrepreneurial journeys.
