TOPIC: TechShop Workshop Invitation

TechShop Workshop Invitation 4 years 11 months ago #2256

Good afternoon! The Indy Chamber is working with the City of Indianapolis and TechShop to continue its market assessment to measure the feasibility for opening in Indianapolis. I’d like to invite your group to a presentation and discussion about the potential to open a TechShop open access maker space in Indy. We'd really love to have IndyRockets participate since TechShop leadership is incredibly excited about the possibility of rocket launches off their prospective building. I don't want to take up too much space on this forum, so if you'd like additional information please don't hesitate to reach out. Below is a brief summary of Techshop and hope it gets you excited about this possibility. Thank-you!

What is TechShop?
TechShop is an international organization that has recently shown interest in the Indianapolis area. Take a moment to read this BBC article and watch this for video a great overview.

TechShop is a commercial phenomenon founded by Jim Newton (former Science Adviser of MythBusters) that has grown to 8000+ members in eight US cities, and helped launch million and billion dollar startups by creating a member-based space where makers from 8 to 80 build their dreams.
