Startup Tiny Tech

Tiny Tech, one of the most promising startups to be born out of the VCU School Engineering, was featured on VCU News, and it seems like they’re as impressed with their entrepreneurial mindset as we are!

“The Tiny Tech team brings together talent from the School of Engineering and the VCU Brandcenter, which is part of the School of BusinessUmar Hasni, a Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering, and Margaret Karles, a student in the Brandcenter’s Experience Design Program, have joined Erdem Topsakal, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, to develop the product and form the company. They are united in their enthusiasm for technology, and in their commitment to make it safer.
