MakerCon connects individuals at the forefront of the maker movement, focusing on the technologies, services ecosystem, manufacturing models, and funding methods that provide new ways of making things and getting them to market. MakerCon is the meeting place for passionate, young entrepreneurs testing the commercial waters with their prototypes; cultural and civic leaders driving maker initiatives in their communities; and product developers drawing inspiration from the maker movement.
MakerCon sessions feature experts in digital manufacturing, technology and tool innovators, leaders of higher education and the new breed of industrial designers. Joining the conversation are partners and principals from top VC firms and crowdfunding services, accelerators and incubators. They come together to exchange their visions about the impact of the maker movement.
