About this Event

MAKING an IMPACT

The Maker Movement empowers people, businesses and communities across the U.S. and around the globe.

We have greater access to the hardware and technology needed to design and make anything imaginable.

Spirited and inclusive Maker communities are rising in urban areas everywhere, as the tools and tech available to passionate and creative people become more powerful, less expensive, and easier to use. How do these trends impact cities?

New England Maker Summit 2019 brings together experts in city planning, Maker Movement industry leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, manufacturers and curious minds to explore "The Impact of Innovation & Making on Urban America."

GET ANSWERS

1. Will growing Hartford’s innovation hub, tech start-up and manufacturing community pave a pathway to economic stability?

2. Can our leadership break down the silos in CT by working together to build a collaborative infrastructure eradicating redundant services, educating students, supporting business owners, guiding entrepreneurs and growing commerce?

3. Where will the future talent pool come from?

4. Can we learn to share our resources to make a stronger Connecticut?
