Awesome show ahead tonight! ASK AN ENGINEER – Special guests! Danielle Applestone, PhD, CEO of Other Machine Co. and Zach Supalla Founder/CEO at Particle!

Othermachine
Danielle’s background blends science, technology, and entrepreneurship. Danielle cofounded her first company in 2003 after earning a BS in Chemical Engineering from MIT. She holds a PhD in Materials Science from UT Austin, and multiple battery materials patents. Other Machine is making design and manufacturing accessible to all.


Particle
Zach Supalla is an entrepreneur, a maker, and a designer. He is the founder and CEO of Particle, a startup that’s making it easier to build internet-connected hardware. Zach juggles hardware design, front-end software development, and leading his team through the trials and tribulations of a hardware startup.

The Particle team led a successful Kickstarter campaign for their product, the Particle Core, in May 2013, raising nearly $600K in 30 days off a goal of $10K. They’re now shipping to 61 countries, with thousands of engineers and developers building new connected devices with their technology. Their products have been featured in Wired, Engadget, Fast Company, TechCrunch, the Discovery Channel, and many other publications.

Zach is a graduate of HAXLR8R, the only incubator for hardware start-ups that will teach you to order bubble tea in perfect Mandarin. He also has an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management and an MEM (masters in engineering management) from the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern. Before Particle, Zach worked as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company, advising Fortune 500 companies on strategy, operations, and product development. Particle creates tools to help companies and people create amazing Internet connected things. Formerly known as Spark.
