Startup Panel: Fireside Chat With Hardware Founders

Join us at Tufts University for a fireside chat with two hardware founders: Matt Fonte, Founder & President of ColdSnap, and Alicia Chong Rodriguez, Founder & CEO of BloomerTech.

Creating a growth style startup is hard. Creating and building a hardware startup is even harder. Come hear Matt and Alicia’s stories as they recount what it takes to build two wildly different hardware companies: One that serves delicious frozen desserts, one scoop at a time, and another that transforms cardiovascular health for women, one bra at a time.

The fireside chat will be moderated by Professor Elaine Chen of Tufts University, who herself is a hardware startup veteran.

This event is part of the “Inside the Classroom” segment of our Entrepreneurial Speaker Series and is hosted by the Derby Entrepreneurship Center at Tufts University. Learn more: https://derbyecenter.tufts.edu
