3D Printing Prosthetics in Vietnam | Rafael Masters & Ha (Ella) Trinh, Vulcan Augmetics

In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with the founding team at Vulcan Augmetics about the work they are doing in Vietnam to bring affordable and highly functional 3D printed prosthetics to the market.

Besides their passion for the product, and the awesomeness of the product itself, I continue to reflect on the dynamic between the founders. Rafael's crazy visions operationalized by Ella's process and translation skills.

The energy between them in amazing, and should serve as a great example for any team of young founders.
