John Rogers

Founder of Local Motors

A modern-day Henry Ford.

John Rogers is going to change the car industry. He has created a community company that will spark a revolution in this capital and time-intensive industry.

LMI makes technology-forward products using the four pillars of our innovation ecosystem: co-creation, micro-factories, direct digital manufacturing, and lab partnerships.

His team begins every product with community-powered, human-centred design and by reinventing manufacturing, create big things on a smaller scale for the local communities that actually need them.
