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

UW ECE is the #1 startup generator at the UW. Join fellow alums, industry partners and friends 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 of ThruWave, Inc., Laura Dorsey of CoMotion, and UW ECE Professors Arka Majumdar (Tunoptix) and Josh Smith (Wibotic / Jeeva Wireless / Proprio). WiBotic and Jeeva Wireless, both companies that trace their roots to research activity at UW and which have contributed $30.9 million to U.S. GDP and 28 jobs, were recently featured in a report on the University’s strong economic impact.

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.
