Carol Latham is an entrepreneur who developed her own unique technology for producing high thermal conductivity materials used to cool the chips in computers and other electronic systems. She is founder of Thermagon, Inc., a founding board member of the Cleveland Center for Arts and Technology, an organization charged with the task of changing the lives of at-risk students and economically disadvantaged adults in the Cleveland area. Carol has published her latest book “A Chip off the Silicon Block: The Power of Entrepreneurial Thinking”: the remarkable success story of a woman on the cutting edge of science and technology.

Ever wonder why the success rate of start-up companies is so low? In this inspirational and informative book, Latham demonstrates how the power of sound entrepreneurial thinking can lead to positive results in the most daunting of circumstances. Latham’s company, Thermagon Inc., evolved as an offshoot of the explosive growth of silicon chips driving the computer industry and the information age.

As computers transitioned from large mainframes, filling whole airconditioned rooms to personal computers, such as desktops, notebooks, tablets, and smartphones, their functionality and speed were dramatically increasing. This phenomenon of miniaturization, combined with increased function and speed, caused overheating of the silicon chips, leading to widespread system failure. Hence, the evolution of the industry designed to manage the heat in electronic systems, of which Thermagon, became a worldwide leader. As a female, Latham defied all odds by successfully creating the products, the facilities, and the funding for a thriving and much sought-after company in the world of technology overwhelmingly dominated by men.

Latham, by sharing her experiences in developing Thermagon and in assisting other start-up endeavors, intends to inspire budding entrepreneurs, working against all odds, by providing guidelines and principles for attaining success. The multitude of personal stories embracing her journey are sure to keep you entertained.
Published by Page Publishing, Carol Latham’s engrossing book is an invaluable source of inspiration for women returning to the workforce after a long hiatus, and aspiring entrepreneurs in any field.
