S7 Nationals North Little Rock
Innovation within Tiny Homes
Make48 came back to North Little Rock Arkansas for Season 7 Nationals - See what happened!
Make48 is a 48-hour competition where teams are presented with a challenge and tasked to build a physical prototype, create a sales sheet, produce a 1-minute marketing video and pitch their big idea to a panel of judges.
This November, The AR Regional Innovation Hub will host the winners from the 2023 competitions to find out who will be crowned the grand champions of Season 7! With access to expert tool technicians and high-tech equipment, competing teams will have the power to build almost anything.
For this challenge, collaboration is the key to success. Many people have big ideas but few possess the resources to develop a prototype that turns them into reality. To build anything, different skills, materials and equipment must work together to create a final product. Make48 allows this process to be achieved with a fun, fast-paced, and educational event. First place team wins $10,000!
The Innovation Hub is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of Arkansans by inspiring innovation and expanding opportunities. Since the Hub’s opening in 2014, their state-of-the-art facilities have provided tools and training to entrepreneurs, students, and other makers, preparing them to join and grow Arkansas’s economic ecosystem.
We are thrilled to be returning to this innovative space and working with their fabulous team for Nationals!
