The Future of Manufacturing in America 

What does the future of manufacturing look like in America? As technology and innovation disrupts industry, and with ever-growing global options for sourcing, how can America keep up and support a new generation of businesses?

Tanya Menendez is the Co-Founder and CMO of Maker’s Row. After quitting her job at Goldman Sachs, Menendez turned to entrepreneurship - building Maker's Row, an online directory assisting emerging and established designers in sourcing appropriate manufacturers in America. Since 2013, over 150K businesses are using the platform, and Maker's Row has raised over $2.5M in venture capital.

Menendez will discuss the Future of Manufacturing in America - including trends, opportunities and challenges in bringing outsourced manufacturing back to America.
