New Board Certified Program Announced

By: NetWork Kansas

Fab Lab Boot Camp

NetWork Kansas has designated the Maker Space Boot Camp at Fab Lab ICC in Independence, Kan. as a board certified program that qualifies for the use of up to $1,500 in E-Community loan funds annually to cover registration and travel expenses for participants in the organization’s Kansas Entrepreneurship (E-) Communities.

The Fab Lab ICC Maker Space Boot Camp joins ELI’s Ice House Entrepreneurship Program, Wichita State University’s Growing Rural Business Program, The Schallert Group’s Destination Business Boot Camp Program, NetWork Kansas’ Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (YEC) Series, and the Kansas Economic Gardening Network as a board certified program.

This 2-1/2 day training is for communities who want to learn how to create an entrepreneurial mindset and maker space in their community to enhance community revitalization efforts. Fab Lab ICC experts demonstrate how they set up their maker space, share impact from community members, and showcase the magic of making, showing that anyone can learn to use a maker space. Participants take home a collection of plans and processes and benefit from two post-camp phone consultations with Fab Lab ICC founder Jim Correll. There is one Maker Space Boot Camp scheduled for 2018: February 20-22. Future dates will be announced.

E-Community loan funds can pay for registration and travel; E-Community marketing funds can also be used for associated expenses. Deeply discounted rates are available for E-Community participants. Contact your NetWork Kansas regional manager for more information. Seats are extremely registered so take action now for February 2018.
