Maker’s Row Raises $1 Million
Maker’s Row is a New York City based company that connects businesses to suppliers. The company has raised $1 million in seed capital. Maker’s Row wants to make the manufacturing process simpler. The company lists factories on their website along with information about them. For example, Fallen Arrows is listed as a digital printing powerhouse that allows artists and small businesses to order custom printed products.
Maker’s Row is mostly focused on helping clothing companies right now, but they will eventually move into other industries. Founded in November 2012, Maker’s Row was co-founded by Matthew Burnett, Tanya Menendez, and Scott Weiner. Burnett and Menendez met Weiner at the 2012 Brooklyn Beta Summer Camp, which is when they decided to go all in with Maker’s Row in May 2012.
This round of funding was led by Comcast Ventures and Index Ventures. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian and angel investor Joanne Wilson also participated in this round.
