Just on the Dambovita shore, in eastern Bucharest, an old industrial building now hosts the most creative hub in the city: Nod Makerspace. The place is a dynamic ecosystem for any creative mind, anyone who thinks business in a creative way – they can find a community in which they can work and thrive.
Nod Makerspace works both as a fab lab/makerspace, a co-working space, private studios, and an event space. Members range from all kinds of different professional backdrops – from designers, architects, artists, sculptors, specialists in advertising, branding to programmers, engineers and inventors. Everyone shares know-how and experience with other members and they learn from one another creating a community of strong professionals. Members get firsthand access to the variety of events hosted including conferences, product launches, workshops and fairs.
Nod Makerspace creates projects that impact the community. Some of the projects are MATER Library – the first “materials library” in Romania and South Eastern Europe, where you can explore up to 2,000 materials ranging from glass, wood, ceramics, hemp and many more. Another project is Level-Up – a free acceleration programme for makers and entrepreneurs that connects participants, mentors, experts, clients and partners, while also providing the equipment, know-how and physical resources required to launch a successful, ready to scale product.
*OZB will present some of the creative entrepreneurs that are currently working in the Nod hub in coming issues.
