What a wild day for open source hardware and for small businesses, check out this report from Inuit (they make QuickBooks, we use it)… It’s called the “Intuit Future of Small Business Report – Hobbypreneurs”. They outline the maker movement and talk about companies like ours…
Today’s passion-driven hobbyists are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs – otherwise known as hobbypreneurs, who successfully combine their passion for a particular hobby or craft with pragmatic business smarts to create new revenue streams for themselves and their families. Intuit today released the latest findings from the Intuit Future of Small Business Report series, written by Emergent Research, that focus on the “Maker” movement and the reasons that hobbypreneurs mean business. The report includes perspectives and data from a recent Maker Faire, where hobbyists identified their motives and reasons for starting their own small business.
