Alex’s company isn’t one I’ve worked for an admittedly a slight deviation from some of the others I’ve spoken with on the podcast so far. However, with this being a new venture his work seemed really interesting and I wanted to speak to him as a result. In this episode we chat about how Alex started up and while everyone was encouraging him to get into programming, he found it difficult when trying to exercise his creativity. 3D printing offered a way for him to get involved in tech but allowed him to be more creative in the process. He goes on to talk about how the business boostrapped it’s launch and the challenges that presented as well as chatting about pivoting to accomodate the market when they realised they’d mistaken the demand for the creation of their own 3d printer.
