Cincinnati is a city for makers. Our products have impacted the world from machine tools to soap. We continue to have a great collection of resources from existing manufacturers to available light industrial space in desirable urban locations. But our community tends to be invisible even to each other. We created Cincinnati Made to be both a public platform for makers and products and to connect our community internally so that we can share knowledge and leverage resources to continue to grow our businesses.
