A makerspace is pretty much a business incubator that is led and used by people, by anybody.
You see a lot of them starting to be implemented in universities, for example. People put together a pool of money to buy 3-D printers and advanced manufacturing equipment that they couldn't afford on their own, and then people buy a membership so that they can access those means of production. Then they can hang out with other people and develop products with them.
It's really an entrepreneurial thing that is starting to be some kind of a business incubator thing, but it's not really supported by government. It's really kind of a grassroots movement. People go there and they can also get trained. Some of them offer classes on how to do 3-D design using 3-D software, how to use the printer, how to use the laser cutter, or how to use the CNC machine. Some people see it as a business incubator, but what is interesting is that the movement behind it was a grassroots movement. It was not initiated by a university or a government. It was really a grassroots movement that just came up.
