Fans of artificial intelligence, tech, and manufacturing shouldn't miss this Startup Grind! Randy Altschuler is the CEO and co-founder of Xometry, a leading AI-enabled marketplace for on-demand manufacturing. After traveling the country to meet with local, small manufacturers to better understand their challenges, Randy recognized the clear opportunity to digitize and disrupt the $260B manufacturing industry. He co-founded Xometry in 2013 as an online marketplace that enables buyers to efficiently source on-demand manufactured parts and assemblies and sellers of manufacturing services to grow their businesses. Randy led Xometry through tremendous growth on its journey to becoming a public company (NASDAQ: XMTR) in 2021.

Before CloudBlue, Randy was the co-founder and co-CEO of OfficeTiger, a global BPO company that would eventually employ 4,500 people. OfficeTiger was acquired by RR Donnelley in 2006.
