Title:Impactful Inventions: My Journey Building a Robotics Company and Transforming Research into a Global Product
Abstract: As technology continues to change society at an increasing pace a new wave of tech entrepreneurs are rising to create solutions for improving the global human experience. It is also becoming more common for scientific researchers to turn their projects into products and form spin off companies. Karlos Ishac is a Ph.D Researcher at the University of Tsukuba and the CEO/Founder of 2 technology startup companies consisting of an international team operating across the globe. He is an inventor with a focus on healthcare interfaces that has lead his team to develop the world’s first IoT posture training system ‘LifeChair’. The LifeChair has gathered vast interest from both Japanese and international companies. This workshop focuses on his journey starting up a company from idea to innovation and will offer insight on the full production cycle from coming up with an idea, developing a prototype, research and patenting and sourcing factories for commercialization.
