How To Be An Entrepreneur? TandemLaunch
TandemLaunch is a unique startup foundry and seed fund based in Montreal. Through investing in highly qualified people, TandemLaunch works with tech entrepreneurs to build companies around acquired university technologies.
Learn about TandemLaunch through the experience of one of our successful ventures: Artmiz Golkaramnay & Gursimran Singh Sethi, the co-founders of LATYS.
LATYS is leveraging groundbreaking research in the area of reconfigurable metasurfaces to create the world’s first non-reciprocal wireless relay system that breaks the current rules of antenna design. LATYS proprietary technology is built using non-resonant metasurfaces that allow us to build ultra-compact wireless relays that are dynamically reconfigurable and are inherently immune to interference, multipath fading, and noise.
ARTMIZ GOLKARAMNAY, Co-founder and Product Lead at LATYS
Artmiz is the co-founder and product lead of LATYS, a Montreal based startup. She earned her BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Norwich University (Vermont, USA) and her MASc in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Concordia University (Montreal, Canada).
Artmiz’ initial research had been focused in diverse areas of circuit design, cryptography, and mathematics. Her latest research was focused on improving 5G mmWave networks using Reinforcement Learning techniques.
With her love for engineering and passion for the wireless communication industry, she has contributed to several professional organizations in different capacities. She served as the collegiate chapter president of Society of Women Engineers, chair of IEEE, and president of Tau Beta Pi.
GURSIMRAN SINGH SETHI, Co-founder & Tech Lead at LATYS
Gursimran is an antenna and Metamaterial design expert. He is currently the technical lead at LATYS which is focused on designing groundbreaking non-reciprocal metasurface antennas that will change the future of the wireless industry.
Gursimran earned his BEng (Hons) degree from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and his MASc degree from the University of Toronto in 2019 where he developed state-of-the art low-profile reconfigurable antennas for Thales Alenia Space.
His research has been focused on developing novel microwave and mm-wave antennas for Satellite, IoT, and 5G applications. He has held prestigious research and work positions at Princeton University and Apple and has been a recipient of multiple Canadian awards and international grants by the Antennas and Propagation Society of the IEEE.
As an active member of the IEEE, Gursimran regularly contributes to academic conferences and journal articles pertaining to next generation reconfigurable antennas. He has also filed for two US patents for his work in the area of reconfigurable antennas.
