Narrator: Welcome back to Disruptors Unleashed, the series that highlights the disruptive technologies shaping our world. In our previous episode, we looked at product reformulation with our trailblazers: Robyn Mandalakis from Act2 Consulting, Nandakumar Subramaniam from Tech Mahindra, and independent consultant Rik Pepermans.

This episode will be a story of hope and perseverance. Easton LaChapelle, the visionary founder of Unlimited Tomorrow, talks about his journey of improving lives by crafting the world’s most lightweight and affordable 3D-printed prosthetic limbs.

Host: Hi, everyone. I'm here with Easton LaChappelle in upstate New York, and we’re here to hear his story. I remember seeing Easton as a 14-year-old when you visited the White House. Then, more recently, I saw a new version of what you took to the White House, and I've just been completely inspired by that story. It's so great that we can share it with a lot more people, hopefully.
