We’re a week into our membership drive, and we’re at 9 percent of our goal of reaching 100 members within our five week campaign. Since we’ve kicked off our drive, we’ve been met with a few questions including; “Why join now when I can just wait until Make San Antonio opens their doors, and join then?” The answer is not as easy as it sounds.
We’re calling on our community, that means you, to help us get to a point where we can open our doors. We don’t have a physical space so we need to demonstrate that San Antonio has a thriving community of makers to sustain a place such as Make San Antonio. We’re kicking off this campaign as a way to show investors the desire for this type of space in San Antonio. This campaign alone will not be enough to get our space off the ground, but our final membership numbers will give Make San Antonio the backing to show that a makerspace is viable in our San Antonio community. Once this campaign is complete, we will have a better understanding of what our membership-base will look like and what size and scope Make San Antonio will be able to provide to our members and the community.
We’re about building a community of makers. Our team is comprised of like-minded individuals with a vast array of interests from 3D printing to photography who want nothing more than to help provide a space for San Antonians to geek out over the same things.
