Alyse Stone is driven and passionate about the future of emerging technology and creating high-growth products that transform our everyday world.

Stone’s tech credentials include her previous role as a Product Design Engineer at Belkin in Los Angeles, where she has driven $24 Million in revenue through her innovation on products and programs, working on projects for Apple and Google. Stone engineered product designs and led overseas manufacturing efforts for a portfolio of consumer electronics, such as GaN technology products, wireless chargers, in-car products, connected cable devices, and overlays.

The products she has engineered have received awards from IDSA, Best of CES, Best of Show Infocomm, and have propelled product designs within the company that have been featured in CNN, Forbes, Vogue, and PCMag. While still an engineering student, Stone launched her first startup at 21 years old after successfully competing in an international business competition. The venture, KOTI, challenged traditional disaster relief by creating a compact, solar-powered shelter design with the potential to save 35,000 lives per year. Stone’s career in tech started in Aerospace, where she work for Northrup Grumman throughout her summers in university. The Fortune 500 aerospace defense leader sponsored her for university through the Jackie Robinson Foundation.

Alyse received her Mechanical Engineering degree from the George Washington University. She has completed coursework through the Product Design Program at Art Center College of Design, as well as ISDX Training at Design Engine, and Unreal Engine Training at Unreal’s HQ.

In her spare time, Stone has partnered with some of LA’s biggest power brokers to lead social impact initiatives that matter to her. She is currently a Board Advisor for STEM Southern Center, a multi-million dollar University of Alabama, Birmingham initiative.

Design ethos:

I built the prototype for my first product at 16 years old at the D.School at Stanford and pitched to it Apple.

Since then, I have been passionate about emerging technologies and how they contribute and change the world we live in. Research coupled with human-centered design practices allows engineers, designers, and creators to explore the possibilities around how we can build products that make a lasting impact on people. Emerging technology creates new opportunities to engage with the world around us and innovate how we live our lives.”
