The community resource where anyone who has a good idea can see it through that Alex Bandar started two years ago has now expanded into a 10,000 sq ft community resource space. The Columbus Idea Foundry looks to foster small business growth, house artists and other entrepreneurs, provide educational resources and give people who have technical training in engineering access to the machines to create products. They will be having an Open House on Saturday, January 22, 2011 from 6pm-10pm to show off their new space to the community. Email RSVPs to the Open House are encouraged.

    They share knowledge and tools. It is a great resource.

  • We stopped by the open house tonight and this is a *very* cool space! Between the art gallery and sculpture displays to the workshop and studio spaces to the interactive demonstrations, it’s like one part Junctionview one part COSI and one part industrial manufacturing space.

    I love the mix of design, industry, engineering and entrepreneurialism. Will be keeping a close eye on the types of projects, events and creativity coming out of the Idea Foundry over the next few years. ;)
