Victor Konshin

Founder, Creation Station CNC

CreationStation-VictorKonshin.jpgVictor Konshin is passionate about technology and is a life-long Maker, Inventor and Serial Entrepreneur. After spending hundreds of hours developing a CNC machine for his own personal use, Victor decided that the machine he created had some fundamental flaws and he could do better. He started over and created a machine that he was happy with and decided that he would share the design through a Kickstarter Campaign and launch a new business while he was at it. With 18 days to go his campaign is up to $73,000 of his $80,000 goal. Victor said, “My hope is to reach at least $200,000 in funding before the end of the campaign. That should be enough initial capital to get the venture off the ground. I have lots of product plans to carry me into the future.”
