Shane's Backgrounder

Shane Luttrell founded HatchPoint, an engineering and design firm founded in 2001. He has provided leadership both in building the company's client base as well as developing the grant proposals and business plans necessary for raising funding for internal projects. Shane has been the PI for both Phase I and II SBIR awards.

Prior to founding HatchPoint, Shane worked at Pfizer/Valleylab on the design of laparoscopic instruments and the National Center for Physical Acoustics in embedded systems development. In 2002, Shane also co-founded FBC Systems (now aPriori), a startup that commercialized real time part costing using mechanistic models and geometric data from the designer's CAD software.
