Our guest today is Makeship’s COO and Co-founder, Pablo Eder.
Makeship, is a crowdfunding platform founded in 2018 with the mission of helping the world transition to a creator economy.
Pablo has many years of experience in science, engineering, and business — having launched multiple start-ups. He is a Mexican-German who lived in Mexico most of his early life. He immigrated to Canada on a start-up visa with the goal of launching his entrepreneurial career while attending school in Ontario.
Pablo had a desire to become an entrepreneur from a very young age. His first venture, launched in 2013, was a 3D printing software automation company called Lani. From there, Pablo started Durata Consulting, a firm focused on machine learning and Blockchain. In 2018, he began his third venture, Bounty — a crowdfunding platform for influencers to fund content ideas.
Pablo joined Makeship as a Co-Founder in 2019 and is now the Chief Operating Officer. He manages the company’s design, operations and technology teams. In his free time, Pablo loves to go for bike rides or rock climbing. Pablo is fluent in English, German, and Spanish.
