From the Engineer of the Future Trust Webpage:
“The Engineer of the Future Trust was launched by Terry Cunningham, in June 2013 on the 30th Anniversary of his graduation with a BASc (Mech, ’83) in Menlo Park, California. The President of EVault™, one of the world’s premier on-premise software and offsite cloud services for data protection and a proud ambassador for Waterloo Engineering in Silicon Valley, Terry kickstarted the Engineer of the Future Trust with a $100,000 gift and a challenge to alumni to match his donation.
With the support of our alumni in Canada and abroad, the Dean of Engineering has created a first in Canada – the Engineer of the Future Trust – a pool of discretionary micro-seed funding for budding entrepreneurs at Waterloo Engineering.”
Project Centaur has received $1,000 of funding from the Engineer of the Future Trust Fund. The team would like to thank the trust fund committee for our reviewing our application and ultimately finding interest in supporting our goals. We will continue to work away on our first prototype and the support will go a long way.
