On April 13th, 2018, students of engineering and entrepreneurship gathered at the University of Gainesville in Florida to attend the IEEE-HKN Student Leadership Conference. The event allowed members to meet other IEEE-HKN members from around the world and grow their professional and leadership skills while enjoying the weekend. Networking opportunities abounded, and so did opportunities for students looking to expand their business sense to learn exactly how to accomplish their goals. One such opportunity was to attend a panel conversation produced by IEEE Entrepreneurship. The panel consisted of four entrepreneurs from varying areas of industry, with a wealth of experience and knowledge between them. Panelists included Shane Owens, the CEO of Technology Assurance Labs, Laine Powell, the founder & Executive Director of Tech Sassy Girlz, Robert Reynolds, the CEO of Solis Energy, and Courtney Powell, the president of AceApplications, LLC. Each of these individuals brought something different to the table during the conversation that took place, based on their own backgrounds in the engineering-driven startup space.
