How Tech Startup Maker's Row Is Revolutionizing American Manufacturing
Founded by Matthew Burnett (a former watch designer), Tanya Menendez (a sociologist by training, who formerly worked at Goldman Sachs), and Scott Weiner (a tech wizard who's been making websites and apps for years), Maker's Row strives to make the manufacturing process easier for brands that want to produce in America. The company has a comprehensive database of suppliers specializing in everything from zippers to denim and sample-making to tooling; it allows users to easily search the list and even write reviews of suppliers. Basically, it's like Yelp for designers and manufacturers. And it makes figuring out how to produce in the U.S. a whole lot easier. We caught up with Burnett to chat about why he decided to start Maker's Row, and how it's working to help revolutionize the American manufacturing industry.
