MADE is a program presented by the OCIE SBDC in partnership with the Original OC Swap Meet, aimed at assisting start-up product-based businesses with entering the marketplace to validate their concepts. Participants will learn core concepts to create a successful business.

Over a five-week period, vendors learn about planning, marketing, financing and how to make their business dreams a reality. This quick-paced program will accelerate your concept in just a few short weeks and give you the ability to operate an Original OC Swap Meet vendor booth and sell to the public at a live market/event.

**FOR FOOD VENDORS PLEASE READ: Please note that onsite food preparation including hot or cold food with service to customer and/or sampling of food will NOT be allowed through this program.**
