Alumnus named to Forbes list for landmine innovation

Friday, May 10, 2019

Waterloo Engineering alumnus Richard Yim was recently named to the prestigious Forbes 30 Under 30 list of 300 young disruptors, innovators and entrepreneurs across Asia.

Yim, who graduated from Waterloo in 2016 with a degree in mechanical engineering and completed the Master of Business, Entrepreneurship and Technology the following year, was recognized in the Social Entrepreneurs category, one of 10 categories with 30 honorees each.

The founder of Demine Robotics, which makes a device to safely dig live landmines out of the ground, Yim was inspired by the deadly landmine problem in his native Cambodia.

He was one of the featured recipients of the annual Forbes honor and appeared in a photograph on the cover of the Asian edition of the magazine.
