Are you in the process of starting or growing a makerspace near you? Join Artisan's Asylum and MAKE for an intensive one-day workshop bringing organizers from some of the leading makerspaces across the country to share their experiences and answer your questions. Over the course of the day, we'll discuss business models, permitting and insurance, community-building and the particular challenges of incorporating education and/or business incubation into your mission. This won't be a spectators event: be prepared to tell your story, ask questions, look at numbers, and make decisions. You may even find collaborators from an area near you!
All participants must fill out this survey so we can better address your particular needs: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/makeamakerspacebayarea
Lunch will be served. More detailed schedule of events and mentors to come!
