Brad Feld, a professional investor seemingly passionate about all things tech (and marathons), organized quite an amazing opportunity for start-ups to participate in a competition called the Feld KC FiberHouse, where the grand price was a rent-free residency/workspace year in a house in Kansas City equipped with Google Fiber 1GB internet connection. The lucky winner moving their equipment to the fiber house is Handprint, a company dedicated to creating a quick & easy browser-based 3D model editing/printing app.
This is not the first time Brad has been involved with helping companies getting started on their journey, as he has invested and/or sat on the boards of over a dozen companies during his career. In this case, however, there are no hidden strings attached – in return for offering the Feld Fiberhouse for Handprint, he doesn’t get any equity in the company or other compensation – except for of course a front seat in watching yet another 3DP company trying to make themselves a household name in the community and beyond.
Congratulations to Handprint, we’re looking forward to seeing what the team can accomplish during their stay at the internet haven!
