The Story and Building Concept
The Make.Work concept is specifically designed to address capital requirements and facilitate the rapid and efficient generation of commercial product and sales. The Make.Work team has observed many companies who, even after their prototype was working, spent precious years trying to raise capital to manufacture it. Small runs are typically very expensive due to the up-front costs and large per-part costs, particularly for the vast majority of small companies who are trying to manufacture here in the US. These young companies would prefer to handle their own manufacturing in this area, but lack the requisite sales to justify the $2-3M investment it takes to set up a dedicated manufacturing line.
Make.Work provides the capacity for manufacturing ‘small runs’ in our 27,000 sq.ft facility with accessory buildings for shipping and inventory storage. Companies can lease space in our facility and share access to manufacturing facilities with other early stage companies.
