Who and what the heck is Pocket Factory?
Bilal Ghalib and Alex Hornstein are traveling around the country for a month with a Prius-full of low-cost 3D printers, starting a business printing and selling things on these machines. Modern-day troubadours, moving from town to town with 3D moneymakers in their trunk, eliciting inspiration and fascination where they travel and making a living for themselves off their ideas and wits. They’re chronicling all the successes, failures and stories from running a design and production business using Maker 3D printers as their production machines. You can read about their exploits weekly on Make, and also on pocketfactory.org.
When & Where
No one masters self employment without help from others. As more and more people pursue independent careers, the need for structure, education, and shared accountability grows accordingly. Just as industries have risen to accommodate the needs of a white collar employed workforce, so too will new services be built for the new independent workforce.
To this end, we provide a platform that allows participants to to create programs that are geared toward this goal. These efforts take the forms of classes, workshops, coworking sessions, mentorships, speaker series, and more. The program is driven by a core belief that each participant has something to teach and something to learn from everyone else.
