Originally working in public health, Lauren returned to graduate school, searching for a change of career. After graduation, she worked consultancy positions in New York and South Africa. When she heard about MakerBot and its amazing emerging technology, Lauren knew she wanted to take a risk and join the startup—and since this interview, Lauren has been promoted to General Manager, North America.
Lauren’s days differ drastically, depending on the project she’s undertaking at the time. One morning might find her on constant conference calls with company partners, running through accounts with the sales managers, while another might mean traveling to distributor partner offices to negotiate deals before returning to leverage legal services and create perfect contracts.
