    Technology Credit Union Announces Singularity University Spring Executive Program Scholarship Winner  

    Ed Julson to attend the Exponential Technologies Executive Program 


    San Jose, Calif. and Moffett Field, Calif. - (April 5, 2011) — Technology Credit Union announced today the winner of its second annual Singularity University Executive Scholarship. Ed Julson, a product manager for Hewlett-Packard’s Software Products division, will receive a full scholarship to participate in Singularity University’s Exponential Technologies Executive Program, held at the NASA Ames Research Park in Silicon Valley. He will attend the fall 2011 session.

    A veteran of Silicon Valley, Julson has 30 years of multi-functional experience in the computer industry in manufacturing operations, finance, product marketing, engineering management, and product management. He has a particular interest in exploring how the emergence of social networking and ubiquitous internet connectivity impact the human experience. A lifelong resident of the Bay Area, Julson currently resides with his family in Fremont.

    “We’re excited to have someone in the local tech community participate in this program,” said Kim Vu, vice president of community relations for Tech CU. “We fund this scholarship because Tech CU has been a part of the high tech ecosystem in Silicon Valley for more than 50 years and we believe in Singularity’s mission: to engage the best minds to create social change. By sending local tech leaders through the Executive Program, we hope they will go on to spark positive change here in the Bay Area.”
