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

    Making a More Efficient Hot Water Heater – Tiago Bandeira – Ep 116

    Making a More Efficient Hot Water Heater – Tiago Bandeira – Ep 116

    Making a More Efficient Hot Water Heater – Tiago Bandeira – Ep 116

    Tiago Bandeira is the founder of Klugit Company.

    His first product is an electric hot water heater. The problem is that a regular hot water heater does a constant on off cycle due to heat loss. This cycling wastes a lot of energy.

    We talk about how he started this company while working at Bosch, which is ironically a company I used to work for. Bosch sponsored this project and didn’t take any equity. A very strange thing to hear but great for Tiago.

    Tiago also ran a kickstarter campaign to prove the concept and that went very well.

    Number one tip: Go for it. It is normal to feel that you are not good enough.

Great intersection of engineering and entrepreneurship!

Scott does a great job in bringing great guests to talk about their engineering and technical aspects of entrepreneurship. The episodes are engaging and full of actionable insights!

A wealth of knowledge for inventors and other entrepreneurs

This podcast is a gold mine, with tips, tricks and information about 3D printing, Intellectual Property, selling on sites like Etsy, Ebay and Amazon.com, and much more.

I particularly like when Scott Tarcy (the host) reviews previous or current projects on which he is working. His 2019 Top 5 Projects show (episode 76) is a perfect example. If you have a 3D printer or plan to have something made on one, I would especially recommend this podcast.
