NYC’s First ‘Monozukuri’ Meetup | #MakerMovement @fabfoundry_nyc @NYDesigns

In Japanese the word “monozukuri” means “making things” – ‘mono‘ is the thing, and zukuri is the act of making. Thus, monozukuri! The act, art, or craftsmanship of making things, hardware… ideas. It’s a Japanese word but it’s part of a broader global trend in recent years – the Maker Movement.

Creating a platform for hardware-centric startups, FabFoundry in partnership with NYDesigns are hosting the first meetup of monozukurists from Japan, Pittsburgh, and NYC next month on April 17th in Long Island City, Queens (at NYDesigns’ unique incubation and fabrication facility).

Details for the first meetup can be found here.

We will have exciting hardware startups and creators from Japan and investors in April, so we will host a meetup to network with hardware companies and creators from Japan at NYDesigns, an incubator for design and hardware tech startups in Long Island City, Queens.

Here is the current timetable:

3:00pm – 3:45pm Reception/Networking/Snack
3:45pm – 4:00pm Welcome by [email protected] + Intro to Monozukuri by [email protected]
4:00pm – 5:00pm Elevator pitches (4 mins intro x 12)
5:00pm – 6:15pm Workshop Part 1 (TBD)
6:15pm – 6:45pm Break/Networking/Food
6:45pm – 7:30pm Fireside chat on trends in Japan vs US (speakers TBD)
7:45pm – 9:00pm Workshop Part 2 (TDB)

(A second meetup – ‘Demo Day‘ – will be hosted the following evening in DUMBO, Brooklyn.)

Part-fabrication facility, part-accelerator, part networking and meet-and-greet with investors, the event promises to be novel for makers & funders alike.
