GenOne started when founders, Chris and David, developed their own product. After its completion, they geared up for the next step: marketing and selling SKUs. They realized, however, that this path would fill their everyday lives with business matters rather than their passion, science and engineering.
So they decided to pivot. Instead, they turned to licensing their idea to focus on developing nascent technologies. They realized that there was a lot of people out there that needed help bringing their ideas to life. This is how GenOne began.
Motivated by his passion to create, he graduated from MIT with a degree in mechanical engineering and physics. Over the years he’s worked on projects ranging from performing tests on jet engines to designing the high-voltage system of a particle accelerator. Rock climbing helps him engage in diffuse mode thinking.
Born in Washington D.C., Chris graduated from MIT in 2014 with a degree in chemical engineering. He has a passion for engineering, and enjoys building things in his spare time. He is also an avid cyclist.
Jimmy graduated from MIT with a degree in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, applying his keen attention to detail and eye for aesthetics to software and web development. He’s always looking to provide people with a great experience, whether it is by creating a user interface or keeping the fun going by DJing.
Graduating from MIT in 2015 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Robotics and Theater Arts, his love to learn and teach pushes him to challenge himself in all aspects of life. Besides his enjoyment from building products, he also enjoys doing martial arts such as Taekwondo.
