Introducing Makers Market
SFMade is partnering with Makers Market, a new online marketplace featuring the work of  American makers. The site launched last week with thirty highly curated San Francisco artisans and a section just for SFMade members. Read more in the San Francisco Chronicle here and visit the site at: http://makersmarket.us.
Find it, Love it, Buy it. 
Here’s your daily workday distraction and it’s guilt-free (well, mostly. It beats a cat video.) Feast your eyes on all the SFMade goods you’ve been lusting after with these two new platforms. Just remember— if your boss  happens to catch you doing a little shopping, politely remind him or her that you’re simply doing your part to support San Francisco manufacturers who are creating and retaining jobs for local residents. Our New Website
SFMade members have spruced up their profiles with pictures, social media links and maps. Search by better defined categories and keywords, and you can search by location for members with retail stores or public factories with this new map page.

Company Spotlight
Aion LED
Aion Team

Aion LED is three for three! When the custom lighting fixture company was hiring they listed three open positions on the SFMade job board and filled all of them with our help, and with help from our workforce partners, Mission Hiring Hall and the Laney College Machine Technology and Industrial Maintenance Program. 

The new team members include Sunny, Electrical Assembler; Daniel, Bench Technician; and Yvette, Administrative Assistant. They’re all full time and learning the ropes quickly. “I studied welding and electronics, but I’ve learned new skills here like soldering, assembly, and measurement,” said Sunny.
Sunny
“Sunny, Yvette and Daniel are continuing to learn and be productive members of the team,” said partner Christine Ironfield.
