Woman of the Week – Natasha Baker

Posted January 08, 2018 4:30 PM by lmno24

I came across this article on our main site, Electronics 360, and thought this lady would be a good one to feature on CR4! We were able to interview Natasha Baker, founder of SnapEDA. This company is a library of parts for circuit board design. The database allows designers to find information and parts for whatever invention they might have concocted.

While working as an engineer, she noticed the need for a service like this. She took the risk and quit her job at National Instruments to start building it. She launched it in 2013, and it now has over half a million engineers using the website each year.

Check out what she predicts for the future of the industry and how she got her start here.
