WET Center Webinar Series | January 15, 2021
Join us on January 15th at 10am to hear from Manu Pillai, serial entrepreneur and technical expert, on the process of founding and growing a technology startup in the agriculture space. The capability to build a technical product from scratch and at the same time develop all business operations and sales is a difficult process to master. Manu will be sharing his insights on how he goes about accomplishing this wide range of tasks essential to the entrepreneurial process. Manu will cover topics such as understanding how to develop a product that fills a market gap, landing that first customer, scaling sales along with the technology, and more. 

Our webinar with California Manufacturing Network's Craig Scharton is now LIVE on YouTube! Watch it here!
