Design, development, and retail professionals from the region are invited to a private networking session with over 50 of the Pittsburgh region’s most exciting craft businesses, maker enterprises, design/build shops, and entrepreneurial artists.

MONMADE helps regional design, development, and retail professionals enhance their projects by including products from local craft businesses, maker enterprises, design/build shops, and entrepreneurial artists. By working with these MONMADE producers, they expand their product offering, and create locally relevant spaces that resonate with contemporary consumers.

CONNECT WITH LOCAL PRODUCERS

The event will feature new products and processes developed by MONMADE producers including textiles, wallcoverings, lighting, furniture, and home goods. By connecting MONMADE producers with design, development, and retail professionals, the event will foster productive business relationships, and lead to opportunities for growth and innovation across the Pittsburgh region.

AGGREGATING AND HIGHLIGHTING LOCAL TALENT

Monmade.org will feature the products, producers, projects, partnerships, and places fostering craft manufacturing in the Pittsburgh region. The website will be an evolving online lookbook to help design, development, and retail professionals, as well as the general public, connect with local producers and their products. These producers are ready to engage with serious projects and grow their businesses in ways that expand and diversify the Pittsburgh region’s 21st century economy.

SUPPORTING LOCAL CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURS

MONMADE is a network and platform developed by the Craft Business Accelerator (CBA) at Bridgeway Capital. The CBA provides local producers (craft businesses, maker enterprises, design/build shops, and entrepreneurial artists) with greater access to capital, guidance, markets, peers, space, and workforce – the essential elements of business success. The CBA aims to create a vibrant craft manufacturing ecosystem that revitalizes the Pittsburgh region’s disinvested areas and produces quality manufacturing jobs.

This event is made possible with sponsorship from the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh
