2012/01 Ping Fu
For our first global theme of 2013 "Happiness," we were excited to have Ping Fu (bendnotbreak.com) share her incredible story with us.
Honored in 2005 by Inc. Magazine as “The Entrepreneur of the Year,” Ping Fu describes herself as an artist and a scientist whose chosen expression is business. In 1997 Ping co-founded Geomagic (geomagic.com), a leading U.S. technology company that fundamentally changed the way products are designed and manufactured around the world: from personalizing prosthetic limbs and repairing NASA spaceships and vintage cars at Jay Leno’s garage to digitally recreating the Statue of Liberty, Geomagic aims to enable advanced design and manufacturing of personalized products that are made locally with global accessibility.
Before co-founding Geomagic, Ping Fu was Director of Visualization at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, where she initiated and managed the NCSA Mosaic software project that led to Netscape and Internet Explorer. She has more than 25 years of software industry experience in database, networking, computer graphics, and advanced manufacturing.
The event was generously hosted by Galapagos Art Space (galapagosartspace.com) in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
