Welcome to Software Engineering Daily; I’m your guest host, Joey Baruch. I’m the CTO at Alvarez and Marsal Data Intelligence Gateway (A&M DIG), prior to which I co-founded and was CTO of HuMoov, a vertical SaaS. I’ve been a software engineer at PayPal, IBM Research Labs, and Qualcomm via the acquisition of Wilocity.
Joining me is Fernando Gómez-Baquero, the Director of the Runway and Spinouts Program at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech, which is the technology campus of Cornell University located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. Fernando is a nanomaterials scientist and serial entrepreneur. He’s built companies around composite aerospace materials, technologies for energy storage and has mentored 100s of companies – mostly with deep tech innovations at their core. He also manages a portfolio of 82 companies created at Cornell Tech and the Jacobs Institute, with a combined enterprise value of over half a billion USD.
Fernando joins us to talk about his experience, speaking to the engineer with the entrepreneurial spirit, encouraging the journey, and laying out the core attributes of a process that can be taught, which will help the entrepreneur build a great company. He reminds us of what’s mission-critical and what can be left for another day.
