The Marketplace

Phase 1: E-Marketplace via our website, launched early May 2018. Designed to be similar to what we envision for our brick and mortar location – it provides a section devoted to promoting the rich manufacturing industry in our region, as well as a shop where visitors can purchase goods manufactured in our valley.

Phase 2: Made In Santa Maria Marketplace, a storefront, located (preferably) in Santa Maria’s downtown district. Based on the “antique mall” model – vendors are provided space to display their products for a fee, a central check out center, and staff are provided – and vendors pay a small commission to defray costs.

The marketplace also has an area for display of local manufacturing, construction, and agriculture – as well as an anticipated farmer’s market.

Launching New Ventures

Launching New Ventures creates three new coworking/incubator spaces in Santa Maria. Each space focusing on a specific industry and providing its member clients access to common, industry specific resources, as well as space for each business entity to operate.
