Edward M. Kennedy Center for Public Service and the Arts, popularly known as EMK Center, is about to launch EMK MakerLab next month, a platform for startups, entrepreneurs and innovators to accelerate product innovation and to get their products off the ground quickly, said sources.
With its open, facilitative, and collaborative approach EMK has become one of the epicenters for youth events and gatherings in the city in recent years. Now, with the EMK MakerLab it aims to push the bar higher and empower makers, inventors, artists, scientists, engineers, designers, and students. The lab, scheduled to launch on 7th November 2015, will facilitate startups, entrepreneurs and innovators to design, prototype their products by using 3D printers and modern technologies.
On the eve of launching MakerLab, EMK is arranging two workshops: first workshop will take place on 26th October 2015 from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm which will give the participants a basic training on 3D printing. The participants will then 3D print products/ prototypes which can aid their startup idea or existing startup business. On the launching of MakerLab the participants will showcase their project.
The second workshop, a 3 day long workshop from 8th to 10th November 2015, will be on start-up, entrepreneurship and will be conducted by a high profile speaker Gary Whitehill, who advises Presidents and Prime Ministers, Fortune 100 CEO’s, economic development offices, incubators, accelerators, think tanks and entrepreneurs on both the art and science of entrepreneurship, innovation and economic development.
