Young alumni of Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering are founding companies that offer innovative solutions to a range of challenges, from shrinking utility bills to providing emergency lighting, from recycling carbon dioxide to storing wind and solar energy. They are delivering high-performance electric motorcycles, exposing counterfeit pills, and changing the way we purchase art.
“Too many good ideas that have real potential for helping people end up on a piece of paper in a library,” says Ashifi Gogo, Thayer ’10, Thayer’s first Ph.D. Innovation Program graduate and founder of the drug-authentication company Sproxil.
Dartmouth Engineer features seven innovative companies that were founded or cofounded by young alumni.
