China’s hardware accelerators turn engineers into entrepreneurs @ The Globe and Mail.

Mr. O’Sullivan laments that the U.S. and Europe have “lost some of our ingenuity in hardware engineering . . . [and] we have less ability to train the next generation of inventors”. That is changing with the emergence of the maker movement but the incubators hope that more people will turn tinkering from a hobby into a profession.

“One of the great tragedies we see is that engineers think there is a choice between being an engineer and being an entrepreneur,” says Mr. Conrad. “We strive to show you can stay in your chosen field and start a successful company.”
