Looking to show off your smarts?
Be one of the first to make history on FactoryoftheFuture.org!
FactoryoftheFuture.org is a new online collaboration platform for manufacturers, technical students and entrepreneurial makers to transfer knowledge and promote innovation – a ‘Mastermind for Manufacturing’©.
“We built FactoryoftheFuture.org to be an end-to-end central idea exchange for people who make things,” said Dr. Mitch Kennedy, Co-founder. “Technology is propelling us forward in every aspect of life, and factories are no exception. Luckily, communication channels are also getting better and better. We want to take advantage of this by creating a collaboration platform to help manufacturers and advance society.”
How to get involved:
“Right now we are looking for writers,” said Dina Pelletier, Co-founder. “We are looking for Thought Leaders, wise men and women with hard-won knowledge, and Newcomers to the manufacturing field. We believe that everyone has something to contribute.”
We are looking for original manufacturing-related articles in the following categories:
- Materials and Waste
- Sales and Marketing
- Supply Chain
- Workforce and Community
Free 1-year Membership:
“While in Beta Testing mode, we are offering a Free 1-year Membership to everyone who wants to join us during our start-up phase,” said Ms. Pelletier.
Members can post for free!
Express yourself; show off your knowledge; make an impact on history and help others learn; write an article for FactoryoftheFuture.org
What is it?
“FactoryoftheFuture.org is a central idea exchange platform for people who make things,” said Dr. Mitch Kennedy. “Technology is propelling us forward in every aspect of life, and factories are no exception. Luckily, communication channels are also getting better and better. We wanted to take advantage of this by creating a ‘Mastermind for Manufacturing©’ — a collaboration platform to help manufacturers and advance society.”
Who’s it for?
- Students (new or changing careers)
- Manufacturers (and all the companies that support manufacturing)
- Makers (entrepreneurial, engineering-oriented, do-it-yourself builders of things)
The goals are to:
1. Support the triple bottom line: people, profit, and the planet. We believe that the way things are manufactured now must become more efficient.
2. Empower those currently in the workforce and create opportunities for students to enter the manufacturing world.
3. Make local and regional economies robust and resilient to disasters, shortages and global economic downturns.
How is it different?
“Every aspect of the site gives people the opportunity to share their knowledge, help others and showcase their smarts,” said Dina Pelletier, one of the co-founders. “We want to empower people to be part of building the factory of the future through FactoryoftheFuture.org.”
The business model is based on giving people who are into manufacturing a platform on which to do great things. And beyond that, we want to give back by hosting local events, online contests and the like, that reward forward thinkers, so we are making preparations to become a Benefit Corporation, as it was signed into law in Connecticut effective October 1, 2014.
