He discussed the opportunities and resources that will be available for students, faculty/researchers, alumni, and parents, and shared his thoughts on the impact that the ECenter will have on campus and in the state of New Hampshire.

Andrew gave us some insights into his innovative research on how technology moves from concept to commercialization, and talked about his experiences with student energy and engagement in all things entrepreneurship on campus.
