The Engineering Entrepreneur Podcast

Sep 12, 2016

Chris Padgett is a mechanical engineer from NC state. He has 6 years of experience in 3D printing and has worked for defense contractors and in the enterprise mobility space. He currently works as the CEO and founder of Fusion3D printers.

We talk about how Chris went from his corporate engineering job to starting Fuison3D. He gives a history of his journey and some great lessons learned.

My key takeaways:

  1. For some people, jumping straight into a project might be the best way. Especially if you are the type of person who likes to focus only on one thing at a time
  2. Chris talks about luck, but I think you create your own luck. Work hard and be willing to pivot. Chris talks about having a strategy but be willing to adapt
  3. Don’t always need angel investors, self-funding still works
