“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
Chip Yates is one of the most recognized green technology innovators and has set 18 World Records in electric vehicles of his own design. His nickname “The Rockstar of Science” comes from an inspired audience after witnessing his electrified speech.
Yates earned his MBA at the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, University of Southern California. He was recruited by USC and hired as an adjunct faculty member at the Marshall School of Business in 2004, and he continues to be a frequent guest lecturer and business plan judge. His deep commitment to education is evident in the time he spends addressing and inspiring students of all ages about the importance of excelling in science, technology, engineering and math.
Yates was a Licensing Executive for the Boeing Company for three years, and a Patent Litigation Negotiator for Honeywell International for nine years, before he formed and led his engineering team to create one of the world’s most accomplished and well-known electric vehicles: SWIGZ.COM electric motorbike and Burt Rutan Long-EZ all-electric airplane.
As the first human in history to break the 200 MPH barrier in a plane powered solely by batteries, he has embraced risk as a necessary component of innovation. The positive and inspirational messages of Chip Yates’s adventurous life have reached thousands of students – from kindergarten through postgraduate – all across America.
In the recent documentary on Bloomberg Television, he once again delighted audiences with his story.
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller, The Open Door.
