MakerBot was Mina's first exposure to the additive manufacturing world and to 3d printing. She started off as the Talent Acquisition Lead and is now the Manager of People and Culture. In the last year, she started a DE&I Committee at MakerBot where employees come together with strategies to help foster an inclusive environment and give back to the community.
NY ambassador & Board Director, Christina Perla, is the Cofounder & CEO of Makelab, the startup disrupting the 3D Printing Service industry. After pursuing Industrial Design at Pratt Institute, she spent some time freelancing with her partner, Manny. Through the need for 3D printing for client work, they met and became friends with the owner of a 3D printing service company. Later, he moved to China and Christina and Manny took over the company. From there, Makelab was born and she hasn't stopped since.
