3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Maker entrepreneurs—those who make things themselves—and small-scale manufacturers are a new, quickly growing segment of the economy. This session will explore this important sector, including how city leaders can support these emerging entrepreneurs. Hear how cities are helping provide technical assistance and affordable working space, and are driving demand for locally-made products.
