Quick Question with Rich Mokuolu: Should you take this “3D Printing for Entrepreneurs” online course?
Quick Question! (Friday, September 18, 10:30AM)
With most people working from home throughout the pandemic, we’re hearing from a lot of folks that the one thing they miss about working in an office is being able to casually and quickly bounce ideas off coworkers (when you used to be able to stop a coworker at the coffee machine for quick feedback!).
Well, that’s why we’re launching this video interview series for our podcast, Fast Forward. We have a ton of ideas and questions about what’s happening in emerging tech (and we get a lot of questions from our community), so Charlie Oliver (show host), is reaching out to thought-leaders in our network to ask them for advice about an idea or hot topic.
For this first Quick Question, Charlie taps manufacturing entrepreneur Rich Mokuolu (coFounder of Partsimony) for advice on whether people should take an intriguing new 3D entrepreneur course that she found on Kickstarter to diversify their technology upskilling and, perhaps, to create new opportunities to provide 3D printing consulting services as a freelancer. There are a ton of 3D printing courses online, but Charlie seems to think this one is unique and wants to know if it’s a good move or too good to be true. Rich is just the person to help her figure this out! View the course we’ll be reviewing HERE.
Rich Mokuolu’s passion for inventing and tinkering was ignited at an early age, when he attached some wires to a battery and a lightbulb and lit up his childhood bedroom for the first time. It also happened to be around the time he saw the movie Flubber, so it’s safe to say his fate was sealed.
Rich has a patent related to the military space and has experienced how difficult it is to get the products he’d spent years developing and prototyping actually made- this led to the creation of Partsimony with his twin brother, Roland.
Rich has worked on numerous critical global supply chain initiatives across various multi-billion dollar industrial companies in the Aviation, Oil & Gas, Locomotive, and Renewable Energy sectors. He advises on hardware-related inventions and can be found doodling designs for new product ideas in his (non-existent) free time.
