Meet Dan Hendricks Founder Open Source Maker Lab


Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the OSML crew…

It’s been an incredible year with amazing projects. We’re thankful for the opportunity to work with so many talented members here in the lab, and thankful for the support we’ve received from so many people both near and far away.

We’d like to share our story with you during this holiday season – to share why we’re so optimistic about the future for entrepreneurs and new professionals entering the workforce – and how we all have so many opportunities. Neal Bloom, founder of Fresh Brewed Tech, did a recent podcast with us:, Eric Westreich did a brief interview with us for Startup Show San Diego:
Wishing you peace, happiness and good health in the new year.

Meet Dan Hendricks, North County resident since 2002, a retired Navy Captain who specialized in nuclear engineering, and is the Founder of Open Source Maker Lab (OSML). OSML is an innovation lab for makers and developers of new products. Once retired, he began working with his kids and their high school’s robotics clubs where he quickly realized there are a lot of energetic people out there who didn’t have a way to connect or build. And so OSML was born. The favorite phrase and criteria for new projects at OSML is “we’ve never done this before”, which demonstrates the lab’s vision for innovation.

Thanks to Cox Business for their support of the local startup ecosystem.
