TechShop is a membership-based, do-it-yourself workshop and prototyping studio that provides makers of all ages and skill levels affordable, open access to a wide range of tools, equipment, resources, and workspace.
Since 2006, TechShop has opened nine locations across the U.S, from San Francisco to Detroit to Austin to Washington DC. TechShop has provided its members with the tools and support they need to launch dozens of companies and create thousands of new jobs in the process. Just ask successful businesses like Square and DODOcase, which created their prototypes right at TechShop!
When a new TechShop opens, the impact on the community is immeasurable. TechShop brings together and cultivates a highly creative, collaborative group of makers, tinkerers, students, academics, and entrepreneurs, who share ideas, learn new skills, and create new products, businesses and jobs.
TechShop partners with universities, community colleges, corporations, nonprofits and companies big and small. Together, we democratize access to the tools of invention in local communities, providing the resources that real people need to turn their big ideas into real successes. As an investor, you become an integral part of this process, as your funds directly impact TechShop's ability to reach, equip, and empower as many makers around the globe as possible.
