Mission Street Manufacturing has a unique take on the 3D printing market:
Our sincere belief is that children are the most creative people in the world. Because they haven’t yet been taught what isn’t possible, they still believe anything is possible – and we agree! 3D printing is tailor made for this mindset. Our products are built around the notion that with intuitive, accessible, and fun tools at their disposal, kids really can create anything they can imagine. A creative spirit lives within every child – Mission St. aims to set that creativity free.”
Brian has great advice for any Veteran who want’s to start a business:
Get the buy in from the people who matter to you most… and then those people will absolutely be there for you when it gets tough”
