Erik Huberman: What made you want to become an entrepreneur?

J: I have realized over the years, in order to achieve a certain goal, you have to start your own venture at some point in life. The great part about that is you are able to create a mission and value for the goal that you are pursuing. Selecting a team with value and heart built into their positions also becomes a high priority that goes a long way. It is truly an exhilarating experience.

E: Tell me about SyncFab

We aim to improve price transparency and improve communication while raising visibility to the richness of local manufacturing and fabrication resources.
