Empowering manufacturers. Creating jobs. Transforming our city.

Every year SFMade honors San Francisco manufacturers for exemplifying the values of SFMade: Manufacturing a quality product, exhibiting innovation, creating jobs for the local economy and making a significant and positive contribution to the SFMade community. We also honor an individual or an organization who has made an extraordinary contribution to making San Francisco a better place for manufacturers to start and grow.

Here are messages from the award winners at SFMade’s annual fundraiser and gala, Ramp it Up! held at the San Francisco Design Center Galleria on May 7th, 2014.
