Gabe Blanchet

MechE entrepreneur and student


I'm finishing my degree in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on product development and entrepreneurship at MIT. I love playing ice hockey for our team at MIT. I also recently developed an addiction to swimming, biking and running in triathlons and plan on competing for the rest of my life. For the most part, I avoid TV/movies and spend most of my free time with friends or reading books and blogs. I used to read all sorts of different stuff but find myself most interested in learning about entrepreneurship, new technologies, third world economics (especially health-related) and first and third world educational policy and issues. Idol: Tony Stark from Ironman Favorite food: Salmon Favorite book: Outliers (really all of Malcolm Gladwell's books)


work experience

GrabCAD Business Development December 2011 - December 2012

I was really lucky to work with the amazing team at GrabCAD building tools that improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of engineers & designers. A few of the challenges focused on were: What is the best way to build GrabCAD as a sustainable business that engineers and designers find useful and fun to use every single day? What are the tools and features that would most benefit our community members and how quickly can we deliver them? How can we reach more people and grow faster? How can we keep the relaxed and fun but hyper-focused culture at GrabCAD as the team adds more and more ultra-smart people?
