What an exciting week it has been for GRMakers!
We were featured in a story on WZZM13 that was about Sergio's iPhone case and how GRMakers supports the local creative entrepreneurs. Samuel did a wonderful job speaking about what it means to be a GRMaker and we demonstrated some of what we do in the space.
WZZM13's Kloqe/GRMakers Story
On Friday, a team from our space attended Startup Weekend (http://grandrapids.startupweekend.org/) and pitched an idea for a cloud based machine lock out system. The idea was pitched and accepted as one of the projects to be worked on over the 54 hour weekend. Soon enough, we had a fully functional prototype thanks to our members dedicating their time in software design, electrical engineering, laser cutting and 3D printing. After assembly and testing, Maqion was born! The final presentation went well and Maqion took the first place spot! We are very excited to show off our success this Wednesday and talk about what the next step is for this fledgling company.
Also, don't forget to start thinking about something to talk about for "What's Going On?"... Share your ideas, dreams and projects!
We have two announcement boards on the south wall of the space and they will act as an information center for now. They will list what things need to be done around the space in case you want to help out, who is signed up for “What’s Going On?” and general announcements. Keep an eye on these to stay informed!
