From Handmade to Small-Batch Manufacturing: Panel Discussion and Breakout Sessions

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For some makers and small-batch manufacturers, success in a side hustle means scaling it up to become a full-time gig. For others, it means making the side hustle a viable business while still keeping your day job. No matter how you approach it, a successful side hustle takes careful planning and management of your operations and practices. During a panel discussion and breakout sessions, hear from each creative entrepreneur about how they have made their side hustle a success, and what success looks like for each brand.
