How To Start a FAB LAB from Ground Zero

September 15-17, 2020 in Independence, Kansas

From our humble beginnings on October 1, 2014 in a rural southeastern Kansas town of less than 10,000 people some remarkable things have happen that, in addition to efforts by other community groups, are starting to help move the needle in revitalizing our area economy.

Join us for 2 1/2 days to learn how you might set up the entrepreneurial mindset and maker space in your community to greatly enhance your community revitalization efforts. A Fab Lab or maker space can support entrepreneurial start-ups and small business development in many ways besides just the prototyping of new products.

Learn more about this event.

  • Save $500 with our Early Bird discount on registrations through Aug. 15, 2020.

  • Hear from community members and stakeholders about the impact Fab Lab ICC has had on the area mindset and economy
  • Take home a collection of documents, plans and processes used by Fab Lab ICC that you can modify to fit your needs without having to create everything from scratch
  • Experience first-hand making so you can see that you definitely don't need an engineering degree to use or manage the maker space
