Virtual Field Trip: Stanley Black & Decker

Aug 19th 2020
Virtual Event

Friend of TTI/Vanguard, Mark Maybury, will host us for a virtual field trip of Stanley Black & Decker, where he serves as CTO. Given its international status in the global tools market, odds are that you have some of the firm’s products in your toolbox or garage, variously branded as Stanley, Black & Decker, Craftsman, DeWalt, Irwin, Bostitch, Lenox, and more. But, as we will learn, Stanley Black & Decker is also active in business incubation (with its Techstars advanced manufacturing accelerator), venture funding (with Stanley Ventures), internal innovation (with Stanley X and factory automation), and cybersecurity (both internally and for its commercial products). During this virtual outing, we will learn about each of these programs and be introduced to a selection of sector-spanning startups, variously making plant-based machine oils, nanocrystalline alloys, a fall protection system, and customized 3-D-printed face masks and enhancements.
