“It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.”
““I believe humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee.”
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
– Thomas Edison
Entrepreneurs are tenacious, crafty & take action.
Courage is important to them. They are folks of action who understand the value of tight budgets, learning, and networking. They appreciate lean development principles, need to get their ideas developed and out to market quickly. At the Open Bench we help entrepreneurs by driving down the cost of entry for product development, providing educational events and connecting them with hundreds of other makers. At the OBP entrepreneurs get access to a huge list of fabrication equipment, can develop as business people and find great new friends, clients and partners.
“Not only was there the physical area and equipment, but also it was the community that truly helped us. As complete novices, when we had questions, there was always someone there that was happy to help us with the solution.”
-Eric Holstein, The Marshmallow Cart
