MADE is a hybrid program 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 six-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 be prepared and ready to launch, expand, and operate your business at a marketplace.

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