By age 25 Maxim Lobovsky
was already a successful entrepreneur and startup founder. His time as a student at the MIT Media Lab allowed him to experience the power of rapid prototyping and 3D printing technologies to produce custom designs for his work. But as powerful as they were, the technology was extremely expensive. Seeing an enormous opportunity, in 2011 Maxim Lobovsky and two other colleagues from MIT founded Formlabs
, a startup developing an affordable high-resolution 3D printer enabling designers, engineers, and makers to easily realize their dreams in beautiful physical form.
After a highly successful crowdsourcing campaign
on Kickstarter and additional rounds of funding, Formlabs announced the Form 1, their fist prosumer model, and on September 2015 launched the Form 2, a new model with larger capacity, upgraded features and simpler usability. He continues to lead his team and organization in transforming the way we think about design, manufacturing and business.
Maxim holds an MS on Media Arts and Sciences program at MIT, and a BS on Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University.
