Makerversity builds and supports communities of the most exciting maker businesses. Our mission is to support and grow a diverse selection of the most exciting maker start-ups. From designers to hackers, engineers to wearable technologists, makers to inventors, we provide space, people and support to develop your creative practice. We aren’t a university, incubator or accelerator - we enable our multidisciplinary creative community to do the work they need to on their own terms.

The Makers with a Mission programme supports 20 designers each year who have a world changing design, prototype or businesses with 6 months free membership for an individual or a team of up to 3.

Makers With A Mission are value driven. They are looking to challenge society's ideas and behaviours through the things they make. Sound like you?

What is it?

Makers with a Mission supports emerging talent, extra-ordinary ideas and new businesses taking their first steps into the world. Through this residency Makers will gain access to studio desk space, workshops and machines, a thriving creative community and business support events. Alongside this, makers will get the opportunity to showcase work to the public through our program.

Who are the Makers?

Makers with a mission are values driven. They are looking to challenge society’s ideas and behaviours through the things they make. They could be pushing a social or environmental agenda or using disruptive technologies and manufacturing processes to transform the way we make and consume.
