CEO and co-founder of Geomagic, Ping Fu, is releasing her “Bend Not Break” (Penguin). It is a story of personal resilience and of business success by someone who is almost an accidental entrepreneur.
Ping Fu lived through Mao’s cultural revolution, where her family was forcibly split up, and an 8 year old Ping was raised and protected by her 4 year old sister. Exiled from China in her early twenties, with no money and little English, Ping managed to make it through with waitressing jobs and university in the USA, a focus on computer science education and unexpected encounters with innovators and entrepreneurs. From those combined experiences, Ping created an innovative and industry leading 3D software company, Geomagic, which delivers 3D imaging and design technologies to the world.
Booklist – Starred Review: “Fu speaks to the need for humanity to practice love in business relations in order to avoid inflicting pain on future generations. This well-written tale of courage, compassion, and undaunted curiosity reveals the life of a genuine hero who remains committed to making the world a better place.”
