“I wasn’t afraid to fail,” AnthroTronix Inc. CEO and founder Corinna Lathan told students and faculty at the GW School of Business about her quest to build a company and become an entrepreneur. Lathan, who spoke Nov. 18 as part of the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence’s Hoffman Lecture series, gave the audience an inside look at how her company went from its business-plan phase to getting government contracts and manufacturing its products.
AnthroTronix is a research and development firm specializing in the development of advanced interface technology such as wearable computing and robotic control systems and design, development, and testing of simulation tools for training applications. The company has also developed a robotic device, CosmoBot, that can be used as a tool to motivate children in therapy and education. It is often used with children with developmental disabilities.
The Hoffman Lecture series brings together faculty, students, business leaders and members of the wider community to discuss entrepreneurship issues. The series encourages philosophical reflection, and practical experiences on problems and opportunities on entrepreneurship.
