The first annual New England Maker Summit took place at the University of Hartford in November 2016. The event explored how Making and Innovation can create new business opportunities, spur community revitalization, and improve schools in Connecticut. The “Maker Movement” refers to inventors, designers, and other self-reliant innovators who are moving American technology forward with their imagination and independent work culture.
