Ashton Kutcher: Actor, Investor, Product Engineer?
In what might be the first ever "celebrity product engineer", computer maker Lenovo held a launch event yesterday at Youtube Space LA for a new tablet, announcing that it has partnered with Ashton Kutcher to be the newest product engineer on its new line of tablets. Lenovo said that Kutcher will work with the company's engineering teams to help develop and market the company's new Yoga line of tablets, providing input and decision-making into design, specifications, software and usage scenarios. Financial details of the partnership were not announced. Kutcher has been a very active investor in high tech companies via his investment company, A-Grade Investments, and has made investments in such companies as Airbnb, Fab, Foursquare, Uber, and others.
