"As Caltech students, you have the tools and the skills to cut out the middle man and change the world," Ohanian said.

Ohanian engaged in a "fireside chat" with former student Greg Tanaka, founder of the startup Bay Sensors in Palo Alto, to speak about how Tanaka's Caltech education has helped to shape his experience as an entrepreneur.
