Join Awesome Pittsburgh as we hear three passionate Pittsburghers pitch their maker projects to the Awesome Pittsburgh trustees, guest judges, and you! One winner will be awarded $1,000 to help carry out their vision. We’ll also get updates on past winners’ projects and learn about four local makerspaces.

There will be a whole lot of awesome, as well as some mingling and refreshments!

Judging this exciting pitch competition are representatives from:

Factory Unlocked
Open the doors to your potential at Factory Unlocked, a place where individuals and small businesses matter. If you find it hard to meet the production costs and high volumes contract manufacturers require, Factory Unlocked solves this issue. They’ll provide a place for you to develop a business and turn an idea into a marketable product.

Hack PGH
Join forces, share your knowledge, and pursue creative projects with your colleagues at this non-profit, community-based workshop. Membership in HackPGH is open to everyone. Here you’ll find a community comprised of inventors, engineers, scientists, programmers, hobbyists, artists, roboteers, families, entrepreneurs, and arts & crafts enthusiasts.

Unleash your inner inventor at Protohaven. This nonprofit was founded to serve the public good by providing the space, tools, knowledge, and community for creation and innovation.

The idea that we can prototype the kind of world we want to live in is what drives this feminist makerspace. At Prototype PGH, all genders and disciplines are welcome to join. It’s a place where you can make, educate, share tools, gain knowledge and find support.
