Thought the below talk by Ping Fu may be of interest to this group. We plan to attend. It is being held by the North Carolina Chinese Business Association.
Come hear Ping Fu, President and CEO, Geomagic, 2005 Inc. Entrepreneur of the Year speak on the topic "The Magic of Thinking Differently"
Inc.?s 2005 Entrepreneur of the Year came to this country from a Chinese prison, bringing with her a sense that she was meant to do something that mattered. Ms. Fu and her company, Geomagic, are perfecting a technology that is already changing the way things ? from turbines to artificial hearts ? get made.
