PING FU, CEO/Founder of Geomagic , Inc. and Author of Bend, Not Break
For our first global theme of 2013 'Happiness,' we're excited to have Ping Fu share her incredible story with us in DUMBO on January 11.
Honored in 2005 by Inc. Magazine as “The Entrepreneur of the Year,” Ping Fu describes herself as an artist and a scientist whose chosen expression is business. In 1997 Ping co-founded Geomagic, a leading U.S. technology company that fundamentally changed the way products are designed and manufactured around the world: from personalizing prosthetic limbs and repairing NASA spaceships and vintage cars at Jay Leno’s garage to digitally recreating the Statue of Liberty, Geomagic aims to enable advanced design and manufacturing of personalized products that are made locally with global accessibility.
Before co-founding Geomagic, Ping Fu was Director of Visualization at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, where she initiated and managed the NCSA Mosaic software project that led to Netscape and Internet Explorer. She has more than 25 years of software industry experience in database, networking, computer graphics, and advanced manufacturing.
Besides her CEO role at Geomagic, Ping serves on the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the White House, she is a member of National Council on Women in Technology, and on the board of directors at the Long Now Foundation.
Ping’s incredible story of personal and business resilience “Bend, Not Break” will be published by Portfolio/Penguin in December 2012.
Ping has one daughter and lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
