Dr. Alex Bandar

Columbus Idea Foundry
Dr. Alex Bandar is an engineer by training and an entrepreneur by accident.  Having spent 10 years writing software for the manufacturing industry, he was inspired by his sister's life as an artist and sculptor, and decided to create a community workshop for creatives and techies, which grew into the Columbus Idea Foundry.  A hardware-heavy workshop for 8 years, last year the Idea Foundry was expanded to include a 30,000 sf coworking space, with, 40 offices, dozens of dedicated desks, and hundreds of members.  Alex is driven to help people discover and pursue their passions, and managing a place where people can create their products, run their businesses, and network with a community of like-minded individuals is his dream job.
