The Challenge

Help Central Coast Silkscreen design a new Maker Space to bring their business to the next level!

Challenge Dates June 18, 2020 – June 25, 2020
Mission Possible

Central Coast is a Silkscreen & Embroidery company that has been making high quality t-shirts, totebags, mugs, embroidered products, and more since 1976! Owner’s Len and Sheri have continued to innovate the Silkscreening market by adopting new technologies and production methods. Now, they are ready to take their shop to the next level by building a unique Maker Space for the community. How can we create a unique Maker Space experience that serves the community’s needs?

  1. The Opportunity

    Public Maker Spaces are growing in popularity and providing opportunities for people to create! DYI maker spaces have become popular and provide the creative environment and equipment to prototype ideas. Petroglyph is a Ceramic Lounge that teaches the community how to make with clay and offers regular classes that bring makers together.

  2. Your Mission

    Your team should identify trends in the maker space community, and design a Silkscreen & Embroidery Maker Space Experience with Central Coast Silkscreen.

  3. Team Deliverables
    1. Create a new and innovative Silkscreen & Embroidery Maker Space where makers can come together to Silkscreen & Embroider for themselves or their businesses.
    2. A drawing or visualization of the Maker Space.
    3. A brief write-up of what the Maker Space Experience will be, what capabilities the space will have, and how they will get customers in the door.

“By being one of the only camps focused on entre “By being one of the only camps focused on entrepreneurship, Camp BizSmart taught me how to really think outside of the box. It adds on a level of competition, which motivated my team to create the best business pitch and the most effective product. The opportunities from this summer camp are unforgettable; pitching at Keiretsu Forum in front of investors was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for offering this program, and I definitely recommend it.”
