Elliot Kotek
Not Impossible Labs - Content Chief & Co-Founder

Summary

In 2013, Mick Ebeling & Elliot Kotek co-founded Not Impossible Labs, a business that uses the crowd of innovators, makers, hackers, designers and engineers to crowd-solve non-invasive healthcare issues.

In October 2013, Ebeling flew toward Sudan armed with 3D printers, filament and orthoplastic & on November 11, a 16 year old boy received a 3D printed arm, and fed himself for the first time in 2 years.

A teaser for Project Daniel was released on January 6, and the story has now (at Feb 6) garnered 320+ million media impressions. Clearly there is an appetite for stories about technology being used for the sake of humanity.

Not Impossible Labs is a start-up operating on sweat equity and its ability to bring in sponsorship partners, but it is also a new kind of business. Using the crowd for product development, and with the mind to tell stories and create medical devices to help others via an open source platform, Not Impossible affirms the maker movement's mainstream move
