New SBA Makerspace Pilot Competition

A $1 million competition to help Makerspaces train the workforce of tomorrow.

Makerspace Training, Collaboration and Hiring (MaTCH) Pilot Competition

By Ashley D. Bell, Region IV Administrator, SBA

We have heard about makerspaces for a few years, but what are they really? A makerspace is a community area that contains innovative tools and components, allowing people to enter with an idea and leave with a complete project.

The SBA is investing in the success of makerspaces through the new MaTCH (Makerspace Training, Collaboration and Hiring) competition. It will award $1 million in total prizes to applicants who will create or expand programs with job-specific and soft skills training within existing makerspaces.
