Tell Us What You Do and How We Can Help

We started the Gearbox Foundation with the hunch that other people would face many of the same problems growing their own hardware ecosystems that we did trying to build a professional makerspace in Kenya, but we want to hear from you in your own words.

If you believe the world needs more people building the infrastructure designers, makers, engineers, and entrepreneurs need to solve local problems, let us know. Take a moment to tell us about the work you or your organization are doing to support hardware entrepreneurs serving the needs of the poor, and how you would like the international community to support your work.
