In preparation for opening the Supplyframe Design Lab in Pasadena, we've been holding semi-regular meetups and other events for just over a year. The idea was to get to know local hackers and makers, plus engineering startups and business.
We've made a ton of friends and found great groups like SGVTech, NullSpace, CrashSpace, 23b Shop, DIY Girls, Girls in Tech, IP Women in Tech, Deezmaker, Acrobotic, and more!
Usually, we have an informal Show & Tell once a month in a bar, but we also go to visit hackerspaces and other events together. When the Design Lab is up and running we will do more talks and workshops.
