90. Innovation Technology: Design Products from Here to Space with João Montenegro
Recently we’ve had the great pleasure of chatting with João Montenegro, an Entrepreneur, Technologist, Designer, and Space enthusiast with ten years of experience in building products and companies. He has worked with company builders, VCs, mentoring and teaching at university, and eventually co-founding various businesses. João is an innate leader and collaborator with a drive to continuously inspire others.
When he is not designing 3D printers, vehicles, and digital products & services, João spends his time doing amateur astronomy in inhospitable places, talking about the future with friends, and reading National Geographic magazine.
