Next Top Makers Pop Up at littleBits store in Soho

October 1, 2015

Last night, some of the city’s most innovative entrepreneurs gathered at the littleBits pop up store in the heart of Soho, where six local makers showcased their newest products. Previous Next Top Makers fellows BotFactory and BlackBox Manufacturing showcased alongside Insensi, Astrohaus, StrongArm, and Dos Owls for an interactive evening centered around the established maker scene in New York.

Featured speakers included Miquela Craytor of New York City Economic Development Corporation, Kathleen Poe of Nike, Kristen Smith of littleBits and Katey Metzroth of Next Top Makers. Check out photos below, and if you’re a maker in New York, you can currently apply to Next Top Makers’ incubator program, during which you’ll have access to mentorship, expertise, a prototyping budget and more! The application remains open until October 12th.

A big thank you to our sponsors Microsoft and Nike, in addition to our fantastic partners VinePairStinkyBklyn, and of course, the ceaselessly-entertaining littleBits.
