CNN Video: TurboSquid’s post-Katrina Recovery
One of the many companies that found themselves cut off from the world after Katrina was popular 3D model warehouse TurboSquid. In an interview with CNN’s Tom Foreman, CEO Matt Wisdom talks about how they turned the disaster into a business opportunity.
Typical of mainstream media, it’s got a few errors: They call TurboSquid a “3d Imaging Company”, and they claim that because of Katrina they “expanded sales into a global market”. TurboSquid has always been an online market, so I don’t think that’s a unique post-Katrina business, but otherwise it’s a great short news story about how they rebuilt the company after the hurricane to become the “largest online vendor in the world of 3d” (CNN’s quote, not mine).
