Passionate about human interactions, Anouk started her career in human resources.

After discovering 3D printing through her husband, founder of Dagoma, Anouk saw an opportunity to reconcile her professional life with her creativity.

After experiencing 3D design and printing, she forges the conviction that families are at the dawn of a new revolution. A revolution that allow families to do some saving, while producing at home through an educational tool: the 3D printer.

Passionate about nature and hiking, she is proud to work with Dagoma, which focuses on preserving the planet using starch consumables. 

Today, Anouk is part of the US development of Dagoma, which aim to make 3D printing accessible to all.

Nora Toure: Anouk, could you let us know about your background and what brought you into 3D printing in the first place?

Anouk Régnier: I’m a French woman who dropped out of technology even though I liked it; probably because it was not ‘girly’ enough. So, I went in a law school instead, and I have a Master’s Degree in public law, employment law and in HR management. I worked a few years in HR for Decathlon (sporting goods retailer) in China and in France.  

When living in China, my husband discovered 3D printing when prototyping a foldable bike. He loved the technology so much he decided to quit his job, and start his own business with a friend. And that’s how they started to design, 3D print, and sell 3D printers. 2,5 years later, they made me an offer to join the company, which I accepted with pleasure.
