I Make Things

  • Founder @ Bre & Co.

Summary

I'm Bre Pettis. I have been a puppeteer, school teacher, artist, videographer and co-founder of MakerBot, Thingiverse, and NYCResistor. I co-wrote the Cult of Done Manifesto and I am currently holed up in a workshop making things for my new company Bre & Co. At events, I encourages stories of meaningful things like hammers and heirlooms.

It is the best time in the history of humanity to be a creative individual. The hardware and software tools are accessible, electronics are modular, and there are amazing resources available to those who are willing to explore the frontier of what happens next.

You can find me on Twitter as @bre.

I am a 2015 Henry Crown Fellow and 2012 TED Fellow.

I've made a few investments in companies including Happy Any Hour, Perch, KeybaseIO BentoBox, Glowforge, Bond, Elepath, Dragon Innovation, Dash Labs, Techshop, Local Motors, and Freeport.

I speak at conferences, universities, and events around the world. Some of the events I've presented at are VMWorld, Qualcomm Venture Summit, SXSWi keynote, European Consumer Trend Conference, TTI Vanguard NextGen, and Roboexotica. I'm represented by the Leigh Bureau. Give them a holler if you'd like me to speak at your event.
