Our neighbours at The Lighthouse, Glasgow, MAKLab have been chosen as a finalist for the Google UK Global Impact Awards with nine other projects. You can vote to add your support the MAKLab but hurry as voting closes on May 31st.
MAKLab already offers access to some extraordinary technologies to ordinary people so that they can realise their ideas through 3d printing, they’ve supported young entrepreneurs, inventors and start-up creative businesses from Glasgow’s Lighthouse building for over a year now.
Winning the Global Impact Challenge would mean that MAKLab could expand their concept across the UK to four other cities including London, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
With one of the awards being decided by the public, every vote counts.
A panel including Sir Richard Branson, Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Jilly Forster, as well as Google’s Matt Brittin and Jacquelline Fuller, will choose three awardees and also reveal the public’s fan favourite choice at an event at Google’s UK headquarters on Monday 3rd June 2013.
