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.

    Hone Your Writing Skills – Pam Hurley – Ep 138

    Pam Hurley is founder and president of Hurley Write, Inc. She helps corporations fix the writing problems that are costing them time & money.
    Everyone must write papers in high school and college (write 10 pages on subject X) but in the real world this is not how it works.
    In the business world, the importance of writing is clear communication. For example, I write SOP’s (standard operating procedures) for most processes in my business. This makes it easy to train a new employee. 
    Number one tip:
    Plan for good writing.

Best engineering podcast out there

thatengineeringguy14 ,

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!

AndrewDarlow ,

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.
