    In 2016, more than 1.4 million people attended one of the 191 Maker Faire events held worldwide. Since its 2009 launch, over $3.3 billion has been pledged to support makers and startups through the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Making has become a bona fide force within the global economy, and the October 2017 issue of Supply Chain Navigator, released today by Avnet (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, features an exclusive one-on-one interview with the man who set the movement in motion, Dale Dougherty, founder and CEO of Maker Media.

    Dougherty sheds light on his journey to becoming “Father of the Maker Movement,” the influence makers have had in driving consumer expectations for more personalized, quick-turn product and how makers can help corporations remain competitive through innovation.

    “Dale had the vision to see what ‘could be’ and the passion to nurture an ecosystem that would allow makers to thrive,” said Wade McDaniel, vice president of Supply Chain Solutions, Avnet Velocity and publisher of Supply Chain Navigator. “As far as making has come in the past decade, there is so much more potential to be realized. Dale shares his thoughts on how bridging the maker-corporate divide can unlock that potential.”
