Makerspace is a place which provides infrastructure facilities to hardware startups. Few months back, we featured a list of top Maker Spaces in India. It included some of the best places providing special labs, equipments and services to hardware startups in the country. The list is going to add a fresh and one of the biggest Makerspaces launching soon in Delhi – MakersBox.
Makersbox, a makerspace by one of the biggest coworking spaces in Delhi, Sproutbox will be opening its doors on 14th October, 2017 with a launch event.
Makersbox is a spacious and vibrant place where people will come together to create and innovate. Most important, anyone young or adult can be a part of various interesting projects like design, fabrication, coding, engineering and art. Furthermore, you can work on Drone building, 3D Printing, Robotics, Internet of Things etc. We had an interesting conversation with Mr. Gagandeep Singh Sapra, Co-founder at Makersbox about his vision and mission. Below are the excerpts –
In 2015 when we opened our First CoWorking Space – SproutBox, we asked ourselves this question – we have now enabled people who work on digital assets, digital creations and in the digital world – but the world is also physical! Where would someone who will be the next Elon Musk, the Next Gordon Moore, the next Abdul Kilam – who want to make things with their own hands, launch satellites – build IOT solutions work from – they need more than a desk and a chair – they need a full workshop, so in October 2015 – SproutBox as it’s first investment – invested in a MakerSpace company called MakersBox.
1st October 2015 is when we made this investment, and Harpreet Sapra from the System 3 Group came in on board as the First Angel Investor. With our commitment to solve the problem of innovation and invention in India, and Harpreet’s vision in October of 2016 – MakersBox was invested in more by System 3 Group and became a Captive Company. With Interest in CoWorking, Maker Spaces, and Education – Today 14th October 2017 is a proud day for us, as we build Delhi’s Largest Maker Space spread across 2500 Square Foot Covered Area, and a 2500 Square Foot Open Area (to be covered in Phase 2 by March 2018) to enable Innovation, Invention by Makers and Startups of Delhi.
