ProductGraph was founded by serial entrepreneurs Scott Austin and Eric Schleicher. This is the second company founded by the pair and the third company that they have worked together at. They met at Active Network and were there when it IPO'd. Then they founded Porch with a couple of other co-founders. Now, they are taking all that they have learned and applying it to ProductGraph.
ProductGraph was founded in 2014 as a result of a simple observation: digital fabrication holds great promise, but its still to hard to master all the different aspects of manufacturing. This led Scott Austin and Eric Schleicher to create the vision for a digital fabrication that is much smoother and more scalable due to the power of software. The ProductGraph platform is optimized for digital fabrication and connects what was previously disparate steps in the workflow. With our powerful software, the way that designs are created is transformed to allow increased re-use and the shopping/configuration experience is integrated into the workflow.
As a result, our mission is: Making it easy to make
Here's a video that shows our direction. This is what the future will look like with ProductGraph, in the not-too-distant future. The company was named Obrary at the time.
The .io domain extension has been generally adopted by technology based-companies. “IO” (or “I/O”) is a common acronym for “input/output,” an obviously common term regularly used in computing and technology. For example, you’ve likely heard of your keyboard being referred to as an “I/O device.”
So, by having a .io domain, we are proudly stating that we are a geeky group of software developers.
