Big manufacturing companies, design laboratories, and R&D departments no longer have the monopoly of innovation as creativity hubs and spaces are emerging in various places around the world. Here, we see small teams of people coming up with new ways and ideas to change the way we live, think, and collaborate.
In Egypt, one such movement has become a new trend. It's called Makerspaces.
Makerspaces are collaborative environments where would-be creators and inventors find access to technological resources that would often otherwise be prohibitively expensive, as well as membership in a community of other makers.
Egypt’s growing maker movement focuses on giving entrepreneurs opportunities to build up their technical knowledge and products rather than ameliorating the employment market.
