About Jon

I'm a former VC, and a serial entrepreneur. In the last few months, I've also taught myself how to code (as well as 3d math and computational geometry) to make a working prototype.

My startup, Shapd (www.shapd.co) is building a new kind of marketplace which is powered by 3d printing. The products are designed by users through easy tools we've created, and are produced when a buyer orders them. We're focusing solely on jewelry to start, but our process and technology could easily be applied to other types of products.

I've been working on this for five months full time, have two part time developers, early users, and a functional in-browser prototype built (with which we've designed and made real 3d printed pieces). We will be publicly launching our "preview" app in the next few weeks, and will be seeking our first round of investment. We need a cofounder to be an anchor for the tech team and to help us finish our MVP.
