Our nation’s rich manufacturing history is not a thing of the past, but a prologue to our economic future. Maker Businesses – solo-preneurs and small batch manufacturers – are investing in cities and towns across the country. These companies have become anchors of economic development and are helping to rebuild and reenergize neighborhoods. They are bringing foot traffic into downtowns, encouraging spinoff businesses, and reviving entire local communities. Join the co-chairs of the Congressional Maker Caucus to discuss how you can help your community replicate successful models.
