Nanotechnology is one of the hottest buzzwords in science, engineering, and business startups. Professor Tim Fisher will talk about his brief excursion into starting (and stopping) a company, with a focus on lessons learned that are related to education and academic research. He will also try to convince a likely skeptical audience that mechanical engineers have something valuable to contribute to nanotechnology (hint: the second part might be related to the first more than you think).
