Meet management of Tinkerine Studios (web site), including their newest member, Ben Yan, who was in charge of sales at Hewlett-Packard prior to joining Tinkerine.
As an investor in the company, I wanted to meet management and check out the “brick and mortar” setup at Tinkerine Studios, (stock tickers CAD: TTD and USA: TKSF), a manufacturer of consumer and prosumer grade 3D printers. Tinkerine is located in the heart of Vancouver, B.C., or “Silicon Valley North”, due to the number of high-tech enterprises moving into the area.
The company is launching the DittoPro printer, a beautiful machine which combines ease of use with great specifications.
Tinkerine Studios is also launching TinkerineU, “a complete ecosystem for students, teachers and parents” that address STEAM education initiatives in North American school districts.

video interview with management of Tinkerine Studios
I came away from my visit with Tinkerine management feeling very confident about their business model, the DittoPro printers, the TinkerineU initiative, and my personal investment in the company. I had the pleasure of spending an hour or so talking with Ben Yan, who was previously in charge of sales at Hewlett-Packard. He’s also the author of Reinvent Sales Process, which received very positive reviews from executives at HP, Citizen Bank, Alcatel-Lucent and others. Ben plans to bring what he calls “the HP way” to Tinkerine Studios, and I believe his recent addition to management will an important driver for the company’s success.
I would like to thank Brian Federal who was behind the camera and did the editing for the video. Brian is filming “3D Printing Revolution”, a documentary film about the 3D printing industry. His web site is at 3DPrintingRevolution.com.
