Speaker Profile

Aaron Horowitz

Co-Founder & CEO


Aaron is a maker; from sculptures to business, he is fascinated with the process of taking an idea from concept to reality. He is the co-founder and CEO of Sproutel, a research and development workshop focused on creating play-based healthcare innovations, like Jerry the Bear – an interactive companion for children with type 1 diabetes. The White House and Barack Obama recognized Sproutel as one of 32 companies representing diversity in tech in 2015, and Aaron as one of 50 honored makers in 2014.

He holds a degree in Mechatronics and User Interaction Design from Northwestern University, a major he created to pursue a passion for understanding how people play with robots! When unplugged Aaron is likely either carving stone or surfing.
