Today, Kate joins me to discuss her firm Dyad Engineering, LLC, how she serves her clients, and how she felt transitioning to entrepreneurship from the corporate world. Kate explains how the design process can shift depending on your positioning and strategic goals and how she has navigated the male-dominated mechanical engineering industry. Kate also highlights the mechanical engineering landscape, including how she has positioned herself as a consultant, and how technology provides the opportunity for more people to connect and make an impact through innovation.
