David Lang


Co-Founder & CEO


David Lang is an entrepreneur and writer. In 2012, along with Eric Stackpole, he co-founded OpenROV to create a low-cost robot to explore an underwater cave. Since then, OpenROV has raised over $900,000 on Kickstarter and become one of the largest underwater drone manufacturers. The team also created OpenExplorer as a digital field journal to empower and connect citizen scientists and explorers. Lang wrote Zero to Maker—part memoir and part guidebook for participating in the growing maker movement.
