Welcome to the Conversation Pit

The real business of engineering is to make a positive difference in the world around us. One great way to do this is filling a need in a commercial marketplace. Engineering entrepreneurship is about bringing to market useful products with a high technology content.

This Conversation Pit serves as an informal community for entrepreneurs at every stage in their journey – from idea to startup and beyond – to share information, ask questions, and learn from one another. We hope it serves as a meeting place. If you have a great idea but need help turning it into a product, you’re in the right place. If you have a product but need help bringing it to market, you’re in the right place. If you are looking for someone that understands what it means to be an entrepreneur, you’re in the right place. If you are looking for a mentor to guide you on your entrepreneurial journey, you’re in the right place. Much of the time, our perspective will be in engineering and technology.

Note: The Conversation Pit is meant to be a supportive space. We don’t want to have to remove anyone from the group for disrespectful or inappropriate content.
