A golden opportunity

Ric Fulop, MBA ’06, was a general partner at North Bridge Venture Partners in 2012 when he realized that the current processes for 3-D printing metal were far too slow for mass production and far too expensive for prototypes.

As a result, he saw an opportunity for business.Before deciding that he should start the business himself, he searched for the appropriate organization for addressing those issues for the following three years.

Fulop made the decision to bring together a group of people who have spent their careers advancing fields related to 3-D printing, such as materials science, machine design, automation, and software, because he was aware of the enormous technical challenges that lay ahead of him.
