STEMpreneurs Guest Speaker Series Proudly Presents:

TN Chan

Founder & System Architect @ Compucon NZ

TN began his engineering career in Hong Kong and immigrated to New Zealand in the 1980s, leading to a transition from process and control engineering to entrepreneurship with the inception of Compucon New Zealand, a computer technology developer and systems integration provider based in Auckland.

TN has been an Industry Supervisor for the University of Auckland since 2002 and a member of the high performance computing design team for the international SKA Telescope since 2012. His skills include engineering project management, production quality assurance, and technology transfer, and he will be sharing the interesting story of his journey from engineer to successful businessman -- TN's formidable experience and humble style will be well worth coming to see.
