All-Star Lineup Invests in MakerBot « MakerBot Industries. Bre writes –

Today, I’m excited to announce that MakerBot is taking $10 million in investment, with Foundry Group leading the round. Our investors are really invested–while Brad Feld and Foundry Group were getting to know us, they built their own MakerBot; you can visit Brad’s Thingiverse page to see what they’ve been printing! Foundry Group has worked with other startup companies that create hardware. We’re thrilled that they understand and support open source. This round will also include investment from Bezos Expeditions, True Ventures, RRE and many MakerBot angels (listed below). We are proud to be working with such great people and we are going to use this money do wonderful things.

This is an open-source hardware company, with $10m in VC funding folks.

  1. Wow – that’s amazing. It’s interesting to see VC’s put so much weight behind a “maker” type business.
