Last week was a whirlwind of activity at TMMBA! Over a three day period Class 8 students had their Technology Commercialization Capstone competition, celebration dinner, and graduation. The capstone was an opportunity for students to showcase their learnings from the past 18 months. Over the course of spring quarter they developed a commercialization plan for a University of Washington technology and then presented it to a panel of judges on June 6. We ended the day with a dinner to celebrate graduation and announce the winners of the competition. Two days later, students headed to the UW Edmundson Pavilion for graduation. This is always a great day for me. I enjoy hanging out with the students as they get ready for the ceremony and am proud to see how far they have come in 18 months. It’s an exciting moment and I’m glad that I get to share it with them. Congratulations Class 8!
