Match a Maker

The Maker Faire is all about Makers and meetings. In order to facilitate more exchange between makers and other makers and between makers and attendees Butterfly Works is running a Match a Maker service.

Everyone at the Maker Faire will be invited to take part, fill in the form or text their request to a mobile number. Then we will match up people who have related requests. We know that many of the attendees even if they are not presenting their work during the Faire itself are in fact entrepeneurs, innovators, trend watchers etc. In this way they will have another channel to meet up with people who need their services. Matches could include for example a programmer in Kenya meeting a new client from Ghana, a designer from Ghana meeting with an international group of makers.
Watch this space or the Maker Faire Africa twitter for the mobile number, so you can take part even if not present. After the event we will report on some of the best matches made.

    The twitter URL is not correct – the Twitter ID “makerfairEafrica” doesn’t exist, “makerfairafrica” does (=you). A bit of an unfortunate spelling error…
