Lisa Q. Fetterman and her Nomiku sous-vide maker business have earned cheers from Kickstarter, Shark Tank, and foodies, but their success came with challenges, including making decisions on Lisa's own career path.

The Nomiku Founder and CEO will share her story on starting a company in the competitive engineering space and growing it on her own terms, ultimately taking charge of her career direction while building a company that saw its revenue double in 2018.

Fetterman has been featured in Wired, MAKE, and Forbes, and was named on Forbes’ and Zagat Survey’s 30 Under 30 lists for her pioneering work and entrepreneurial approach, an approach she harnessed to bring Nomiku's manufacturing back to the states with their new Wifi-Nomiku device, to add RFID to the product, and to draw attention to Nomiku's original designs when competitors and imitators challenged the company for investment funds, recognition, and, ultimately, market placement.
