A Chat with The Hacktory
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our activities are educational and unique. They involve innovative fabrication techniques such as lasercutting, and take place in our inspirational workshop full of tools and parts.
What is the experience customers can expect?
A friendly, safe environment with experienced party assistants who help out with our afterschool program. All assistants are subject to a thorough background check. Ample coordination and support for scheduling and logistics is provided by the Director.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
A place to gather people who like to make things and share their knowledge. Birthday parties are one way we fund other programs such as afterschool for under-served children in the neighborhood, and artist residencies.
What do you love most about your job?
The chance to make things every day, and inspire others to find joy in making things. When we need a part or tool, we usually have it, or have a way to make it.
