Zinn: ZinnStarter, the Zinn version of Kickstarter
Most people are familiar with Kickstarter, the crowdfunding platform that helps Makers get their projects off the ground. Ray Zinn, the longtime CEO of Micrel, and our weekly guest, started his own version of Kickstarter, aptly named ZinnStarter. He offered up some seed money to college students and they are expected to take the money and start up a business. They report back to Ray on a quarterly basis, and have the potential to receive more money if certain criteria are met. Ray explains it in detail on this week’s call.
