Episode 522 is an in-depth chat with Jonathan Palmer. He is the owner of Autometrix and a new board member for the Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI). Thom Singer met Jonathan at the IFAI Expo, where Thom was the keynote speaker and master of ceremonies. The organization was made up of many entrepreneurial companies, and he knew he had to get Jonathan (and others) onto the Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do podcast. This is the first of what we hope to be many interviews with the members from IFAI.
Autometrix is a manufacturer of Cutting Solutions for rolled-goods, from fabric to carbon fiber. They have state of the art cutting tables, digitizing tools, and software options.
