Small Empires: Maker’s Row and the future of American Manufacturing.
For small business owners and entrepreneurs, finding factories and sourcing facilities is not a trivial task. People bringing products to life have to pay substantial directory fees or know someone in the industry. Enter Maker’s Row: a new approach to cataloging, organizing and representing the best American manufacturers so designers & entrepreneurs can go from concept to prototype without going overseas or over budget.
My favorite company in the world, also sourcing USA manufacturing, is Wintercheck Factory. Kristen Wentrcek is cool people and she inspires me to achieve similar positions in business management, design, production and marketing.
