Join us! The UW Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (UW ECE) is pleased to invite you for an in-depth look at successful startup companies generated from UW ECE for our Virtual Spring 2021 Virtual Town Hall Startup Spotlight event!

UW ECE is the #1 startup generator at the UW. Join fellow UW ECE alums from around the world to hear from a panel of our faculty, postdocs and CoMotion partners about commercialized cutting-edge technologies emerging from UW ECE labs.

Our panel includes Claire Watts, Laura Dorsey, and professors Josh Smith (Wibotic / Jeeva WirelessProprio) and Arka Majumdar (Tunoptix).

UW ECE professor and Chair Eric Klavins (A-Alpha Bio) will introduce each panelist and moderate a Q&A on how startups get going at UW ECE, how the UW supports these efforts and how industry partners or alumni like yourselves can get involved.
