Today I want to share with you the story of an interesting engineering startup. Ennomotive comes from the idea of leveraging the rising Crowd Economy to introduce a new business model into the engineering consulting market.
“We are living a “good” moment, companies are facing a tough competitive environment due to the maturity of globalization but at the same time the opportunity of new technologies and the power of internet,” says Enrique Ramirez, CEO of Ennomotive.
“The labor market is changing quite fast. People in the 70’s worked for the same company for their entire professional life; In the 2000’s started to work for 3-4 companies and now people will be much more mobile.”
In fact, the number of freelancers is growing quite fast and companies are directing their workforce to focus on core competencies. Moreover, the trend is to renew staff with a younger workforce that can easily understand and adopt the new wave of technologies.
So, as an engineer, what can you do? Is this an opportunity or a threat? How can you continuously learn and get ready for these changes?
Maybe you could embrace the opportunity of the crowdsourcing revolution and become part of the Ennomotive community!
This way you can face real business challenges and understand what companies are doing and get ahead of their needs. Observing is a good first step. Then you can connect with companies, get known, and “learn by doing.” For example, for a given challenge you could conduct some research, learn about new robotics, understand how to use “cobots” and maybe design a new gripper that can be 3D printed!
The opportunity is real! In fact, sometimes employees compete and beat tech companies! Some freelancers or students beat tech centers. Real industry “experts” solve some challenges but engineers or SME’s that have faced similar cases in other industries solve others.
One of the “secrets” is that for a given challenge you should start from “the problem” and not try to “push” any given solution.
So, what can you expect from this young startup?
At Ennomotive you can become part of a real engineering community, find interesting engineering cases, and participate in online competitions. If you like IoT, energy efficiency, manufacturing technologies, or 3D printing and robotics you can learn, enjoy, improve your career path, and stay informed on upcoming technologies.
Start today to become the engineer of tomorrow!
As an extra treat, here is a short and amusing video that shows how history could be made with Ennomotive (and you).
Engineer your innovation to a better future!
