Savannah Peterson has spearheaded Shapeways marketing as well as has taken on the lead for community engagement. Charlie Maddock currently acts as Director of Business Development and is an expert at the finances of the 3D printing industry. Together, they've helped developed Shapeways into the 3D provider it is today. With their professional experience, they'll be able to help us get a better understanding of what it takes to build up a technology company like Shapeways, and how to prepare yourself for either entering a marketing or a business development role wherever you go.
