Beijing Makerspace will be bringing in a carefully screened selection of about 20 corporate executives/investors, entrepreneurs, institutions, and local Chinese government officials who are super excited about the Maker movement, to the Bay Area between September 28th and October 4th. The main officially-publicised objectives of their trip to the San Francisco Bay Area are to:
1. Create a vision of the transition to incubating more makers through a better understanding of innovation
2. Explore the type of services they should focus on in this new road to develop a Maker-focused industry
Beijing Makerspace strongly believes that the culture and spirit of Noisebridge are crucial elements to this development. Having these carefully screened selection of Chinese citizens immerse themselves into this incredibly unique space for a few hours and meeting with all the wonderful hackers would help them best understand how Noisebridge achieves its mission to "be excellent to each other."
On September 28, we would love to kickstart the trip through the magic of Noisebridge with a hosted lunch at the space at 1pm, in order to directly meet all interested and available hackers to talk about Noisebridge's culture, hackers' projects, and more. We would also be joining the Circuit Hacking Monday that evening.
Throughout the whole time, we will be having a simultaneous interpreter to help minimize language barriers.
Who: Makers interested in sharing stories of being a maker and Noisebridge Where: Gracias Madre, 2211 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94110 When: 13:00 Monday, September 28
