On June 5, Rod Canion, the founder of Compaq Computer and Cullen College of Engineering alumni, will sit down to discuss the journey and the challenges of creating one of the most successful and fastest growing personal computer companies with Russ Capper from the Houston Business Makers Radio Show.

Creating compatibility with the IBM PC and giving away free technology to create advanced open industry standards for personal computers was key to Compaq's success, but it almost did not happen. Please join the MIT Enterprise Forum of Texas and the University of Houston Bauer College of Business to hear this amazing Houston Success Story. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions during the question and answer period.
