One thing that has become apparent in the last year is that the Makers have brutal creative potential and above-average problem-solving skills. But when they want to monetize those skills, they often get stuck, get bored and don't know how to advance.

At this table we will talk with Makers who have taken the step and who will tell us about their experience throughout the process, from how they got the initial financing, how they built the team or how they went on the market to make a living from their project.
