*MakerCloud launches in private beta on April 15. *
Our goal is to simplify manufacturing to become the go-to destination for all manufacturing needs from small and medium-sized companies that arise from the Maker Movement.
Our entry strategy is to focus on better access through more transparency: We allow makers to pick the best manufacturers and service providers from a community-sourced and reviewed portal. Think oDesk for manufacturing. Check Ariba, Panjiva or MFG for comparison.
From there we will work on more major pain points for makers in manufacturing by utilizing the community's interest in more transparency, the data we gather, and a set of freemium online tools.
We do not only focus on makers, but also on suppliers (see bio). Future facilities will be completely autonomous and set-up to facilitate very low to high volume productions. We will support domestic suppliers to specialize on the MM and this industrial revolution.
