Why Every Engineer Needs to Know Something About Business | Anne Schauer-Gimenez | TEDxUWGreenBay

After complaining about a challenging assignment, Anne Schauer-Gimenez was told in graduate school, “every engineer needs to know something about running a business.” In this TEDx talk, Schauer-Gimenez describes her journey from engineering into business. By starting a company, Mango Materials, she has gotten out of her comfort zone and made a transition from the lab into a role of outreach and marketing. Schauer-Gimenez is the vice president of customer engagement and co-founder of Mango Materials, a startup company that uses biogas (methane) to feed bacteria that manufacture a biodegradable polymer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science ’00 and a master’s degree in Environmental Science and Policy ‘02 from UW-Green Bay, along with a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Marquette University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
