In honor of the launch of #MADEINDC program by Think Local First and Small Business Development Program, MITD will be highlighting local businesses who are a part of the program that design, make/produce, and/or assemble products in the District of Columbia.
Think Local First DC and DC Small business started the #MadeinDC Program as a response to the momentum and growth of the Maker and creative economy in Washington, DC. The Made in DC Program will operate as a citywide campaign and platform; creating opportunity for Makers to come together for resource and experience sharing, as well as perform as a channel and messenger between Makers and the local government.
