DEMOCRATIZING MANUFACTURING

We are working to identify advances in hardware, software, and services would have the biggest impact on increasing the variety and value of what an individual could design, prototype, and manufacture, and how entrepreneurs can best be supported to make the transition from being a “maker” to low-volume manufacturing. Additionally, we will identify the barriers that entrepreneurs and SMMs (small and medium-sized manufacturers) face when trying to access an established supply chain, and how to lower barriers to accessing new technologies by SMMs.
