Please join us as we interview Chris Naber, Director of Product Development, of FirstBuild.  FirstBuild is a Subsidiary of GE Appliances with a start-up feel.  Located in Louisville, KY right on the corner of the University of Louisville.  FirstBuild is focused on inventing what’s next for the home through a different process than the ordinary.  They believe in co-creation with you!  Anyone can share ideas, interact with them on social media about an idea, or even visit their location to share and work on an idea.  With successes like the Opal Nugget Ice Maker, Arden Indoor Smoker, and Mella: The Smart Mushroom Fruiting Chamber already under their belt, we can’t wait to see what YOU and FirstBuild come up with next!
