I'm Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot. We're leading the next industrial revolution to empower creative explorers to make anything. MakerBot is setting the standard in desktop 3D printing. We're changing the face of personal manufacturing and changing the way the world thinks about THINGS. I'm proud to have been a public school teacher. I started NYCResistor. I've made a lot of videos. I've been on the cover of WIRED and I play clawhammer banjo to relax.

You can find me on Twitter as @bre.

I've made a few investments in companies including BondElepath, Dragon Innovation, Dash Labs, Techshop, Local Motors, Cambrian Genomics, and Circa.

I speak at conferences, universities, and events around the world. Some of the events I've presented at are VMWorld, Qualcomm Venture Summit, SXSWi keynote, European Consumer Trend Conference, TTI Vanguard NextGen, and Roboexotica. I'm represented by the Leigh Bureau. Give them a holler if you'd like me to speak at your event!
