Our Private Enterprise Podcast interview this month features Jay Jacobs, parallel entrepreneur and Founder of many companies, the most well-known of which is RAPID Manufacturing.
I had the fun of getting to know Jay over the past year as we at Bigelow worked with Jay and his senior team to architect its acquisition by ProtoLabs, a public company that most people would say is the global leader in digital manufacturing.

When Jay received the 2017 Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the New Hampshire High Technology Council, he was quoted as saying, “The worst thing in life is not failing. The worst thing in life is not trying. I’m glad I tried.” What you will hear in this podcast is absolutely true to this quote. Jay’s life work was a journey – filled with successes and failures. On this hour-long podcast, you will hear lessons he learned and unlearned along that path of unfettered determination.
