Building with Extensibility, Enter Holistic Innovation

Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and how this got you into the field of robotics?

What’s the story of you coming to be the CTO at Pipedream?

What is the goal you’re trying to accomplish at Pipedream?

How will you guys help with achieving this holistic economy?

I would assume that’s a similar thought process to how Elon Musk came up with Hyperloop & The Boring Company.

What makes now different from 6 years ago when the idea for Pipedreams was first conceived?

Great to hear that the success of other companies like Hyperloop, helps you guys out.

It’s cool to see how Elon’s impact is shown every day. Would more competition in deep tech mitigate the struggles within the industry?

This ascertains my thought that we should start to look at deep tech like a community.

So how is the companies roadmap looking like?

What do you mean by building extensible?

Any big wins so far?

How has the networking been?

What are some interesting companies you know of in robotics and AI?

Are you talking about Jarvis from Iron Man?

Which could happen right?

What’s something that could happen externally that would benefit your company?

Reminds me of molecular nanotechnology (MNT), nanoscaled robots that can self-assemble.

Where should someone without a degree start if they want to be a part of the robotics industry?

Andrew Kirima Andrew was born in Kenya and moved to the US when he was 3. He graduated in the class of 2020 from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Systems Engineering and a minor in ECE (Electrical & Computer Engineering). His entrepreneurial endeavors began senior year of college when he and some classmates founded Facade Technologies to sponsor their own Senior Design Project. They built a desktop application named Facile that can compile APIs to automate other applications. Right now, he is the CTO of Sencha Credit, an early stage fintech company, where they are working hard to develop the debit card that builds credit. Their mission is to empower everyone to build credit effortlessly and reach new financial heights! He loves to share his enthusiasm for the acceleration of technology on his blog, as he encourages entrepreneurship while exhibiting his passion for deeptech. Andrew understands that the speed of innovation is exponential, but he’s worried it takes too long for organizations to utilize new innovation, so his mission is to teach & demystify the complexity of deeptech to everyone. “Humans beings are evolving. Some believe we’re transcending into a new paradigm of evolution, and I want people to embrace that future.”
