Adafruit supplies hundreds of hackerspaces and makerspaces around the world with tutorials and great electronics (with great discounts!). We also have a series of articles on how to start your own hackerspace by Eric Michaud. We’re celebrating all of them on the Adafruit blog!
Today is TekVenture & Columbus Idea Foundry, both from North America!
TekVenture – Fort Wayne, IN
“The Mission of TekVenture is to provide an environment offering space, tools, materials, and mentors where the community can realize their creative potential, satisfy their need to make things, talk shop with other makers, and connect with emerging technologies and the industries that use them.”
Columbus Idea Foundry – Columbus, OH
“The Columbus Idea Foundry is Ohio’s premier Makerspace. We’re a community workshop, learning center, and creative space.

Would you like to be an Adafruit distributor?
We have a very easy reseller program and would love to have more great people and companies as distributors, resellers and hackerspaces, all of whom receive special prices on their orders.
For many of our products you get up to a 30 % discount for just 1 quantity. This allows you to get a great discount even when ordering a small amount of items and it’s great for folks who want to try out a new product in their store. As always, if you order 50 or more of these items, this discount goes up to 40%. Note! *Not ALL items have reseller pricing, these discounts are only for items that can be marked down for our resellers, but we are adding more products to this list all the time! Remember, in order to receive this discount, orders must be $250 or more, not including shipping.
We have great relationships with our distributors and are working to provide even more features for them in the future. To become one now, click here and keep in mind the following:
- Are you an online store, a physical store or a hackerspace that would like to distribute our products? If so, please include a link.
- Will your orders be at least $250 (not including shipping)?
- Can you pay via PayPal or credit card? For large international orders, can you pay via wire transfer?
- Do you have a UPS account? (This is not required, but would be helpful).
We look forward to working with you!
