Katie Rae of The Engine — The Future of Tough Tech, Ecosystems, and Stagnation

"So the question was, could we create a community and a venture capital fund that would inspire people to stick to these really important. But tough technologies, right. Ones that could stand the test of time, but take capital and know how and deep knowledge in order to be able to actualize."



In this episode of Build The Future, we talk with Katie Rae the CEO and Managing Partner of The Engine which is a venture fund in partnership with MIT that's building an ecosystem to support the development of tough tech companies.



We talk with Katie about building a tough tech ecosystem, science vs. engineering risk, and whether or not Katie agrees that we're in a period of stagnation.
