In short: The company’s printers are being held up by contract negotiations led by the union representing workers at Los Angeles’s port.


Who’s getting buzz?

GoLocker got included in a CNBC story about why 2015 is a good year for a new business.

BioLite is at CES talking about its new lighting and power storage devices, according to EntrepreneurWe wrote about the many iterations of their stove for homes in the developing world.
