Understanding One Simple Truth Helped This Founder Raise $23 Million This entrepreneur turned an unsexy subject into a successful business.
Podiatrist-made foot supports don't exactly leap to mind when thinking about 3-D printing. What sparked the connection for you?
I was working at a 3-D printing manufacturer and saw that most of the things that came through didn't make sense for the technology. 3-D printing really works when it improves a product through customization. I have terrible feet and started wearing orthotics at 6 years old. It's such an unsexy industry that no one's really paying attention to it. But that means there's plenty to do.
