Mike Moceri is credited as an innovator and entrepreneur with a deep-rooted passion for pushing the boundaries in the design and advanced manufacturing sector. His journey began in 2012 when he co-founded 3DPX, the world's first 3D printing retail service bureau. This Chicago-based startup gained global recognition for its unique blend of retail and production, signifying a new era in 3D printing services, on-demand manufacturing, and product design.
Building on this success, Moceri ventured into Detroit's manufacturing industry by establishing Manulith in 2014. Manulith offered a comprehensive suite of services ranging from design and rapid prototyping to production for the automotive, aerospace, medical, consumer products, and industrial application sectors within the Great Lakes Region.
In 2016, he expanded his footprint further by founding MakerOS. As an industry-leading software-as-a-service platform, MakerOS served small to mid-sized design, engineering, and manufacturing firms. It digitized their workflow from initial client interaction to project management, production, and payments. As of 2022, MakerOS proudly served over 10,000 users globally, spanning 3D printing services, product design firms, Fortune 500 companies, universities, and more.
Following the acquisition of MakerOS by Shapeways (NYSE: SHPW) in April 2022, Mike took on the role of Head of Software GTM and then later assumed a broader role as the Director of Product, Strategy, and Co-Innovation, further solidifying his leadership in the sector.
Moceri now resides in New York City, working on a new problem set and challenges from which multiple new ventures and areas of research and development are forming while maintaining and collaborating with his robust connections across North America.
Moceri's diverse interests span across energy, manufacturing, micro-industrial automation, product design, AI, new media development for fine arts, storage/data processing related blockchains, and geopolitics, reflecting his commitment to continuous learning and innovation. His professional journey and interests showcase his capacity as a leader at the intersection of technology and business to develop products, solutions, and strategies for the emerging challenges of today and the future.
