Where to build, create and collaborate: a tour of local spaces

Where to build, create and collaborate: a tour of local spaces

While many successful companies have been founded in a garage, sometimes you need access to special tools, expert advice and the support of fellow makers, engineers and artists. Join this special event for an in-sider look at the Valley’s top maker spaces and coworking spots for any creative entrepreneur projects ranging from high tech electronics to cutting edge fashion and kiln-fired ceramics. Attendees will learn how to access these resources, go on a live virtual tour and meet fellow creators currently using these spaces. The event also includes a hands-on workshop to spark your next big idea! 

This event is hosted by the Peoria Forward program, an innovative partnership with the J. Orin Edson Entrepreneurship + Innovation Institute at ASU and the City of Peoria. It will be broadcast from Pop-Up Peoria, the new collision space created by the City of Peoria and is a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual attendance options.

Who: Anyone launching or interested in launching a project, business, venture or solution. This is an opportunity to share community expertise!
