MADE IN NAMIBIA
FABLAB together with NBIC just completed a 2 day workshop for SME’s on product development and innovation!
We met a bunch of great, creatively charged individuals***
We found that a lot of people need help, with machinery, and label design/packaging being the most in demand.
When FABLAB’s doors open, we most certainly have our work cut out for us! There is a lot to be done, and more ideas and help needed - WE CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Its been a while
