Makers with a Mission

By Esther Ellard

Makerversity – Kickstarting the fourth industrial revolution.

Supporting maker businesses has always been at the heart of Makerversity.  Alongside offering free membership to Under 25’s we now offer a 6 month residency for Makers with a Mission.


What is it?

Makers with a Mission supports emerging talent, extra-ordinary ideas and new businesses taking their first steps into the world. Through this residency Makers will gain access to studio desk space, workshops and machines, a thriving creative community and business support events. Alongside this, makers will get the opportunity to showcase work to the public through our program.


Who are the Makers?

Makers with a mission are value driven. They are looking to challenge society’s ideas and behaviours through the things they make. They could be pushing a social or environmental agenda or using disruptive technologies and manufacturing processes to transform the way we make and consume.
