Cambridge University PhD student- seeking Makers for a study on Fabrication Spaces and Entrepreneurship

Dear SHM members,

My name is Valeria Dammicco, I am a 2nd year PhD student at the Institute for Manufacturing (University of Cambridge, UK), studying entrepreneurship and Fabrication Spaces (Maker Spaces, Hacker Spaces, Fab Labs…).
I am currently seeking to gather the experiences of individuals who have used these workshops to develop and commercialise one of their inventions. My aim is to collect these narratives to unveil common patterns of behaviours and processes among Fabrication Spaces that could potentially foster entrepreneurship levels at a regional and national scale.

I would be glad if you could circulate this call or contact me directly ( if you think you could help me and my research.
Your help would be very much appreciated.

Please, let me know if you have any questions and I hope to hear back from you soon.

Best Regards,

Hi there,
we used to have one member who made jewellery to sell at the space, another member machines
some parts there and we have one artist who makes pieces using the laser cutter.
