Do you have an idea for something you would like to build but don’t have the right tools, skills or space to build it? Or maybe you want to be part of a community of people who like to make things?
Perhaps your business needs access to equipment that can help in the building of rapid prototypes? Or you may just want to expand your knowledge of design, prototyping and manufacturing?
If you’re interested in this kind of thing, it’s likely AssentWorks will be near the top of your list. The impressive start up in Winnipeg’s Exchange District (in an unassuming 100-year-old building across from Canadian Footwear on Adelaide Street) has been helping grow Manitoba innovation and business since October 2011.
Julien Cooper interviews Kerry Stevenson, one of the three founders of AssentWorks, Canada’s largest makerspace. The interview is produced by CKUW 95.9 FM, Campus and Community Radio since 1963.
