From the garage to the store, Science Channel’s All-American Makers offers opportunity to amateur inventors. Every week, four top makers from around the nation pitch their products to a panel of three experts, Printrbot founder, Brook Drumm, mechanical designer and robots expert Brian Roe and venture capitalist Marc Portney. Each maker’s product is put through a series of rigorous tests to find out how it works and if it lives up to its claim. Should the product make the grade, it’s then subjected to the scrutiny of real consumer focus groups. Based on the feedback of Drumm and Roe plus the focus groups, Portney decides if he wants to invest his own money in the maker’s business and help bring the product to the store shelves.
Brook Drumm has been making and creating things for as long as he can remember. He is the owner and founder of Printrbot, one of the leading 3D printing companies in the world. When he first put his product on Kickstarter he hoped to reach $25,000, but was blown away by receiving more than $800,000 in less than 30 days. Give Drumm a problem and he will solve it, the harder the better. He can make, build and tinker through any sticky situation.
INPEX exhibitors will have the opportunity to meet Brook Drumm, Tuesday evening, June 16th at the exhibitor networking event from 5:15 – 7:00 pm at the Monroeville Doubletree Hotel.
