The RBC EPIC Founders Program is an intensive 12-week accelerator program for startups and early-stage businesses looking to capture market and customer validation. This year, our 2022 cohort began their journey on May 16th and will continue to work towards validating their business model until the final pitch presentations on August 9th (stay tuned for more details). Leading up to the final pitch, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to each of our startups. Today, meet Mahsa Jalali, UWindsor Electrical and Computer Engineering Ph.D. Student, and Founder of MiDecSa.
EPICentre: Let readers know a little bit about your background.
Mahsa: I am doing my PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Windsor working on the Connected Autonomous Vehicle project at Mechatronics lab and am interested in high tech equipment such as 3D printers. Currently acting as the student chair of IEEE, Windsor section.
EPICentre: Tell us a little more about your business, MiDecSa.
Mahsa: The greatest gifts are those that touch our souls and remind us of the value and meaning the person brings into our lives. Using 3D printing combined with traditional woodworking to create a new series of personalized gifts is my mission. The products will have the traditional feel and texture you would expect from any wood product combined with the intricate details that are only possible with 3D printing.
EPICentre: Who is your biggest inspiration?
Mahsa: Sincerely, every strong woman that has her own business and helps others to improve has inspired me to follow my dreams! However, my father has always encouraged and inspired me throughout my life.
