Early in the spring of 2018, Evan Rambo, a legal studies major and a safety for the Cal football team, got wind of a new course that promised a unique experience for students on the Cal campus. The more he learned about the subject, the more intrigued he became.
So when an academic advisor emailed the entire football team about the class, Rambo knew he had to act quickly if he wanted to secure a coveted spot on the roster.
“Let me make sure I get my interview in first and try to be one of the first applicants to actually get into the class,” Rambo thought. “It was something I really wanted to be a part of from the beginning.”
The course was titled a Sports Tech Collider Sprint and held at the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology. Tucked inside the northwest corner of California Memorial Stadium and part of the College of Engineering, SCET describes itself as promoting the study and practice of entrepreneurship and technology innovation.
