The Finger Lakes Advanced Manufacturers’ Enterprise is pleased to present Mr. Jeremy Bout of Edge Factor at its annual industry/education event on February 16, 2017 at Monroe Community College!
This year’s FAME Keynote speaker is a mixed brew of caffeine, ideas that defy convention, and passion that drives creativity. After spending 12 years using technology to bring ideas to life in the manufacturing industry, Jeremy Bout leads the Edge Factor team in producing inspiring films and accompanying interactive resources to inspire the next generation of makers. As a critically acclaimed filmmaker, public speaker and entrepreneur, Jeremy continues to turn ideas into reality to equip leaders to impact their communities. Edge Factor productions merge Hollywood visuals with cinematic storytelling, to highlight innovation, teach career pathways and manufacturing, and make science, technology, engineering, art and math relevant in today’s world. With stories and interactive resources, Edge Factor challenges perceptions and spotlights the amazing people and technology, that are changing lives and pushing back the edge of what’s possible.
