Jon Soong Co-Founder & CEO, Makers Empire
Jon Soong is the CEO of Makers Empire, the world’s easiest to use 3D printing software and integrated Learning Program for primary and middle schools. Makers Empire fills an essential gap in the current 3D printing software market, as its 3D design and printing technology can be used by students as young as five years old. In the future, these students will be using 3D printing technology in their daily lives -- just like we use computing nowadays -- so it’s imperative that they become confident users of this technology as early as possible. Makers Empire launched in 2014, and its engaging, curriculum-aligned Learning Program is now being used by primary and middle school students in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and the USA. Ultimately, Makers Empire is excited to be helping to create a generation of makers and problem solvers, rather than mere consumers. The future is indeed bright.
