In Maker, the motto is: “We can’t do everything ourselves. But we can do most things together”.
The members are the beating heart of our organisation, and they spark life, new ideas and movement into Maker through their education, skills and curiosity; everything from architects to designers, engineers and anthropologists comes here. From students with an idea on a napkin to the professional start-up looking to scale their business.
We have built our foundation on collaboration. That’s why we also have a wide range of partners who are all passionate about physical entrepreneurship and the maker movement and contributes with knowledge, skills, tools and, not least, their commitment.
We are constantly working to gain new knowledge and skills to be able to push some of the agendas that are becoming increasingly important to society and at the same time pass on valuable new knowledge to our members.
That’s why we are engaged in a number of different projects, everything from Open Source Hardware to recycling materials to sustainable construction and distributed design, which you can read more about here.
Since 2015, we have developed and participated in a wide range of activities, all of which with the aim of supporting physical entrepreneurship and sustainable product development.
Everything from local projects with the Danish Architecture Center to EU-based innovation projects.
We have helped to push the boundaries of Open Source Hardware, so that more companies can now see the potential of a new type of business model. We helped develop and build a refrigerator for the world’s poorest that can go “off-the-grid” for up to 72 hours and thus reduce food and medicine spoilage. We have put it all into small stories, which you can read about here.
In Maker, we believe that physical entrepreneurship, sustainable solutions and innovation should have the best possible conditions, and we want to play a role in creating green and circular solutions. That is why we give creative, curious and energetic people the opportunity to realize their ideas.
We want to create the best conditions for physical entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainable solutions in the Danish entrepreneurial environment and collaborate with everyone who has ideas to come even closer.
We want to make it easier to be a physical entrepreneur by providing access to physical facilities, building and exchanging knowledge and skills and building connections to established companies.
We want to make it more fun to be a physical entrepreneur by organizing events, festivals and activities for and with current and future members.
