Join us for Entrepreneur Encounters featuring Sarah Boisvert of Fab Lab Hub
Entrepreneur Encounters is a monthly speaker series featuring local entrepreneurs. This event invites the community to hear entrepreneurs share the story of their business journey, and lessons learned along the way. Through this event we hope to make connections between businesses, community members and NMSU’s Arrowhead Center to help grow entrepreneurship in our community and support the success of our local businesses.
Sarah Boisvert has over 30 years experience in the design, development, and commercialization of high technology products utilizing Digital Fabrication including laser machining and 3D Printing.
