From Forcefields To Acid Neutralization

In this episode of the Ignite Podcast, we sit down with Matt Borowiak ’19 about his company Workers First LLC. He has worked with the Shipley Center and Dr. Richard Partch to create a new generation of chemical suits and protective clothing. We discuss the challenges of refining ideas, the slow process of creating IP, and how to balance school with your business.

Finding Your Authentic Self

In this episode of the Clarkson Ignite Podcast, we sit down with Simoon Cannon ’97, who gave the commencement address to the December Graduates this year. She had much to share about her career and life, but what really excited us about this episode was the opportunity to explore what it means to be your authentic self. It was central to her commencement speech, and to who Simoon is as an individual. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much as we did.
