Hi this is Scott Tarcy and welcome to the Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast

I’m a mechanical engineer and the president of CADdesignhelp.com. My company does CAD work and prototyping. I love designing and inventing products and creating businesses around that activity.

There are many podcasts out there about entrepreneurship and a few about inventing, but I have yet to find a podcast specifically about the engineering and technical side of entrepreneurship

Since I couldn’t find the exact podcast that interests me as a design engineer and entrepreneur, I decided to go out and create it myself

My strategy with this podcast is to interview engineers, designers and inventors who have created businesses around their inventions and products

I specifically want to focus on the engineering and design side of their products and inventions

    Coravin Wine Preservation Device – Greg Lambrecht – Ep 141

    Coravin Wine Preservation Device – Greg Lambrecht – Ep 141

    Greg’s background is in medicine, but he has been passionate about wine since his first sip of a vintage wine in Napa at age 16. He received his Master of Science in Medical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
    I’m not a wine guy, but the history of why wine is bottled in glass and the size of the bottle is interesting. We discuss all of that and why Coravin solves many of the problems of storing wine after it has been opened.
     
    Number One Tip:
    The best inventions come from meeting an unmet need. And you need to know whether you want to be an inventor or an entrepreneur.
