Company Summary

Makeably is the platform where new things get made. We enable people with ideas (buyers) to come together with people with skills (makers) to create cool new stuff. We open up untapped potential for makers by enabling them to get work based on their range of skills, not just the products they've already made. We take the coolest creations made on our site and sell a limited run of those items ready-to- buy, based on what users are voting for.
