About Maker and physical entrepreneurship

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.
 

Under the motto “We can’t do everything ourselves. But we can do most things together,” we bring physical entrepreneurs together and create the links to established companies and important stakeholders to give life to new ideas and solutions and support the growing ecosystem of curious talents.

In short, Maker is the link between the maker movement and the corporate world – here you get the best of both worlds.

We make it easier and more fun to be a physical entrepreneur

The Danes are full of drive and have tons of good ideas to solve both small and large challenges. However, despite the many good ideas, there are still far too few who choose to become entrepreneurs and realize those ideas. And of those who try, there are still far too many who fail. We at Maker would like to change that.

 

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.

Other Makerspaces and Workshop Communities

When you have the idea and the urge to create the product, it can still be difficult to figure out where to go in terms of facilities, machinery and an environment of like-minded people. But luckily there are a lot of cool places all over Denmark.
