Tulip helps the manufacturing workforce stay competitive.

People will always be the most valuable resource of your operations.

Automation has done a lot for manufacturing, but the most complex tasks are still done by people. People still run the factories, people still do the most challenging assemblies and service the machines. Our goal is to help them do a better job, putting the latest technologies to work on their behalf.

We’ve been in your shoes.
We’re building the tool we wish we had.

We stem from across the manufacturing industry. We’ve felt the pain of not having real-time production visibility. We’ve felt the frustration of failed Industry 4.0 projects. We’ve felt frustrated by slow-moving infrastructure. We’ve built Tulip as the tool we wish we had back at the factory.

The early days – Tulip co-founders visiting a customer.

From the lab to the shop floor—always on the cutting edge.

Tulip was started by a team of engineers out of the MIT Media Lab. Our platform is based on over ten years of research in digital manufacturing, lead by world-class experts on breakthroughs in technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), machine vision, human-computer interaction, augmented reality and machine learning.

We’re eager to transform how manufacturing works. Again.

We’re a team of digital manufacturing pioneers who have shaped the industry through business and academia. We come from the founding and executive teams of leading companies like Formlabs, Autodesk, Solidworks, Markforged, Samsung, Rethink Robotics, MIT and other organizations that have redefined how we manufacture today. We’re ready to do it again. Join us.
