Make ICI designs and manages collaborative factories that enable artisans and entrepreneurs to launch and develop their businesses in shared workshops. Professional and digital manufacturing machinery, storage space and assembly rooms are shared. Technical training courses and workshops run by professionals, support services and much more have also been set up.
We act to place Artisans and Entrepreneurs of the "Do It Yourself" industry and their know-how at the heart of a more sustainable, innovative and creative economy.
Make ICI factories are revitalizing productive neighborhoods, re-establishing practices that enable local production and innovation. Little by little, an ecosystem is developing that will sustainably promote local activity. Make ICI has set up in localities undergoing change, and each factory is designed in close partnership with local authorities and developers. Its network includes 5 factories: ICI Montreuil (2012), ICI Marseille (2018), ICI Nantes (2019), ICI Wasquehal (2021°, Le Jardin des Métiers d'Art (2022). Three more factories are scheduled to open in 2023 in Tours, Paris and Le Morvan. Make ICI was founded by Christine and Nicolas Bard in 2012.
