SparkFun ~ DIY Founder Nathan Seidle @ MIT

Cool to have SparkFun founder and CEO Nathan Seidle speaking at MIT just now about his experience doing a DIY-startup! He described how SparkFun grew from a one-man operation, literally run out of his undergraduate apartment, into one of the largest DIY supply companies enabling engineers, designers, students and hobbyists to build new kinds of electronics. He spoke about starting on credit cards and with zero business knowledge, but with a keen social and venture ethos. SparkFun's grown to over 80 people who sell to those who...
"...play with cool electronic gadgetry" and are "all united in one common goal -- Sharing Ingenuity"
How great is that!
